Abstract

The dielectric and magnetic properties of manganese oxide-coated Fe 3O4 nanoparticles (NPs) were measured by the transmissionreflection method in 2-18 GHz. MnOx-coated Fe 3O4 NPs were prepared by sol-gel method followed by heat-treating at 300, 400, and 500 C, respectively. The heat-treated powders were then used as magnetic fillers and added to an epoxy resin to prepare MnOx-coated Fe3O4 composites for the complex permittivity (ε′-jε″) and permeability (μ′-jμ″) measurements. After the sol-gel process, the coating of manganese oxide (mixture of major Mn2O3 and minor Mn3O4) reduced the value of ε′. The lower the heat-treating temperature, the larger the decrease in ′. The relative decrease in ε′, compared with uncoated Fe3O4 nanoparticles, is 28.7, 23.5, and 20.0 for coated MnOx heat-treated at 300, 400, and 500°C, respectively, while the relative decrease in ε″ is 74.1, 68.8, and 65.2, respectively. In the present study, MnOx-coated Fe3O4 exhibited a significant decrease in dielectric loss tangent of ∼100 compared to that of uncoated NPs and can be of practical use for microwave components.
