Undoped Mn0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 ferrite nanoparticles and Rare Earth Gadolinium doped Mn-Zn ferrite powder were synthesized and characterized using X-ray Diffractometer (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM).A small amount of rare earth oxide can significantly improve the microstructure and magnetic properties. A very fine particle size can be obtained by doping. For all rare earth oxides, a small amount of doping can significantly. The present studies indicate that rare earth doping can be one of the effective ways to improve the performance of soft ferrites.
