Abstract

"This dissertation consists of four sections. The first part is a temperature dependent X-ray study of the lattice parameters of BiFeo₃. The synthesis and subsequent X-ray characterization of BiCo₃, BiAlO₃, BiMnO₃ , BiScO₃, BiCo₁₋ₓFeₓO₃ , and BiAl₁₋ₓFeₓO₃ are reported in the second part. These compounds all crystallize in the body centered cubic (BCC) structure with a~10.2Å. Single crystal Precession and Weissenberg photographs confirmed the BCC structure. In part three, the results of the magnetic studies on BiCoO₃ and biAl.₉FE.₁ are presented. The magnetic data for BiCoO₃ are substantiated by X-ray thermal expansion studies. In the last part the compound BiCo.₉FE.₁O₃ is examined in some detail. The magnetic studies are substantiated by the X-ray thermal expansion results"--Abstract, page iii.
