Abstract: In this paper copper doped lithium ferrite nanoparticles effectively synthesized using sol-gel technique. The synthesized product was analyzed by using TG/DTA, XRD, FT-IR, FE-SEM, HR-TEM, VSM and CV studies. TG/DTA study indicates that the thermal stable of the prepared copper doped lithium ferrite nanoparticles. XRD result confirms that copper doped lithium ferrite nanoparticles have development of cubic phase with Fd3m group and also average crystallite size calculated for different ratios using Scherrer’s formula around 40 nm. FT-IR spectra confirm the presence of absorption band of lower frequency (ν2) at octahedral site and higher frequency (ν1) at tetrahedral site of prepared nanocomposites. The FE-SEM image of CuxLi1-xFe2O4 (x=0.2) nanocomposites clearly specifies that the spherical morphology with agglomerated particles and the same is confirmed by HR-TEM study. The EDAX analysis showed that the existence of Cu, Fe and O elements. VSM study reveals that copper doped lithium ferrite nanoparticles are paramagnetic in nature. Copper doped lithium ferrite nano composites exhibits the higher specific capacitance value at 587 Fg-1 for 10 mVs-1 studied from CV.
