October 1-6, 2017


Multiferroic nanocomposites which possess both ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties are attracting much attention because of their scientific interest and significant technological promise in the novel multifunctional devices. Gas-phase syntheses have been typically used to fabricate multiferroic nanocomposites [1]; however, high production cost has been hindering further expansion of the research field. In this research, the components of multiferroic nanocomposites are fabricated by anodization and hydrothermal treatment which were then used to fabricate multiferroic nanocomposites through electrophoretic deposition (EPD) as cheaper alternatives to the costly gas-phase processes.

TiO2 nanotubes arrays were firstly formed on Ti metal foils by anodization in an electrolyte containing ethylene glycol, dimethyl sulfoxide, ammonium fluoride and water. Then, BaTiO3 nanotube arrays were obtained by hydrothermal treatment of TiO2 nanotube arrays using Ba-containing aqueous solution. The morphologies and crystal structure of BaTiO3 nanotube arrays were analyzed by a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and an X-ray diffractometer (XRD).
