Description

Fe-doped MgO (Mg${}_{1-x}$Fe${}_x$O, $x$ = 0, 0.05, and 0.07) nanoparticles synthesized by the polymer pyrolysis method were investigated. The precursors were calcined at temperatures of 700 ${}^{\circ}$C for 3 hours in air to obtain the phase of MgO. X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES), and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM) were used to characterize phase, morphology, valence states and magnetic properties of the samples. The samples had a phase of the face centered cubic with crystallite sizes of 25 $\pm$ 2 nm. The result of XANES spectra showed that the Fe${}^{3+}$ exists in the samples. The weak ferromagnetic (FM) behavior at room temperature (RT) is observed for all Mg${}_{1-x}$Fe${}_x$O samples with a maximum magnetization of 1.30 emu/g for $x$ = 0.07. The origin of ferromagnetism of the prepared Mg${}_{1-x}$Fe${}_x$O samples was discussed.
