Synthetic magnetic opals
2002 (English)In: Pramana (Bangalore), ISSN 0304-4289, E-ISSN 0973-7111, Vol. 58, no 06-maj, 1051-1059 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We present studies of novel nanocomposites of BiNi impregnated into the structure of opals as well as inverse opals. Atomic force microscopy and high resolution elemental analyses show a highly ordered structure and uniform distribution of the BiNi filler in the matrix. These BiNi-based nanocomposites are found to exhibit distinct ferromagnetic-like ordering with transition temperature of about 675 K. As far as we know there exists no report in literature on any BiNi compound which is magnetic.
