dc.description.abstract"Conventional solid state reaction method, from oxides and carbonates, was employed to prepare bismuth (Bi)-based multiferroic systems. The undoped BiFeO3 (BFO) and the codoped system with Ba, La and Ti (Bi1?xBaxFe1?yTiyO3, Bi1?x?zBaxLazFe1?yTiyO3) with x,y,z=0.1 were prepared stoichiometrically and sintered at two different temperatures. The structural and magnetic properties were investigated at room temperature. XRD measurements confirm the obtaining of the rhombohedral perovskite structure of the BFO family system. For the undoped system, some reflections of undesired phases are present for two different sintering temperatures, while for the doped system only one phase is present for both temperatures. The magnetic characterization at room temperature revealed remarkable differences between the ceramic samples. The results show that for undoped BFO system, spontaneous magnetization is not observed at room temperature. Nevertheless, in doped one, a well-defined ferromagnetic behavior is observed at room temperature, possible, due to the suppression of the spatially modulated spin structure of BFO promoted by the reduction of the rhombohedral distortion and the weakening of the Bi–O bonds. The XPS results confirm the presence of oxygen vacancies and the coexistence of Fe3+ and Fe2+ in all the studied samples. Calorimetric measurements reveal that the dopant incorporation has not a direct effect in Néel temperature but possibly yes in ferroelectric-paraelectric transition."
