Abstract: newline Multiferroic (magnetoelectric or magnetodielectric) materials are greatly focused by the scientific community through worldwide because of their intriguing fundamental physics and novel multifunctional device applications. Magnetoelectric or magnetodielectric materials are nothing but the coupling between the two materials having ferroelectric and ferromagnetic phase. Here, in ME or MD materials the electric polarization can be induced by means on application of magnetic field or vice-versa. Coupling between the piezoelectric effect of ferroelectric material and magnetostrictive effect of magnetic material are mainly responsible for the ME effect in the composites. Lead based material like; (PZT) is one of the most studied and widely used ferroelectric materials with its high ferroelectric and piezoelectric properties. But, toxicity of lead containing material hinders its use in many applications. Also, lead based materials are banned in many countries worldwide, therefore search of lead free material having compatible properties to those lead containing material is the big task for a researchers among worldwide. Amongst different lead-free piezoelectric materials such as BaTiO3, (BiNa)TiO3, (KNa)NbO3 and the solid solutions of (Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3-Ba(Zr0.2Ti0.8)O3 (BCT-BCT) are likely to be the most probable candidates for the replacement of lead based materials. newlineIn the present work, we have synthesized the lead free ferroelectric composite [x(Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3-(1-x)Ba(Zr0.2Ti0.8)O3] (BCT-BZT) where x = 0.15, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5. On the other hand ferromagnetic phase Co0.9Ni0.1Fe2O4 (CNFO) is selected as a magnetostrictive material to make coupling with ferroelectric BCT-BZT. Here, microwave sintering technique is implemented for the complete formation of ferroelectric, ferromagnetic and magnetodielectric phases. Following ferroelectric, ferromagnetic and magnetodielectric systems are synthesized in bulk phase employing hydroxide co-precipitation method and sintered using microwave sintering technique at 1100 °C and 1200 °C.
