Abstract

We synthesized BiFe1-xMnxO3 (BFMO) for various compositions by sol gel process and thin films were deposited by spin coating on platinum Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si substrates. X-ray diffraction shows all the diffraction planes corresponding to rhombohedrally distorted perovskite BiFeO3 structure. The absence of any impurity phase in the films suggests the incorporation Mn ion preferentially to Fe site in the structure for low concentration. Magnetic measurements reveal the formation of ferromagnetic phase at room temperature with increased Mn substitution. On the other hand, ferroelectric polarization decreases with increasing Mn ion concentration. Raman studies suggest the dopant induced structural distortion.
