Abstract

SiO2 compound was introduced into zinc ferrite using formula (1-x)ZnFe2O4 – xSiO2 synthesized by sol-gel method where distilled water and citric acid was used as a solvent and binder agent. The produced samples were annealed at 450 °C for 1h. The AFM result analysis show that the average surface roughness and particle size decreased as the compositions of x was increased. XRD results analysis confirmed the formation of spinel structures with crystallite size within range 11.27 – 4.72 nm. UV-Vis analysis to determine the energy band gap of the (1-x)ZnFe2O4 – xSiO2 samples. It shows that the energy band gap increased as the composition of SiO2 was increased due to the dielectric properties of silicon dioxide. FTIR results analysis exhibit common band in the range of 400 – 4000 cm-1. The observed band near 2350 cm-1 shows the presence of oxygen-oxygen bond in the face centered cubic (fcc) crystal lattice of oxygen atoms. The addition of SiO2 into ZnFe2O4 will help to enhance the morphological structures and optical properties. This new proposed dielectric material can be used as dielectric substrate microstrip patch antenna.
