Abstract: Inverse spinel structured cobalt ferrite is one of the capable nominee for information storage and also in nanoelectronics devices. The present paper reports the rietveld refined structural, elastic, electrical and dielectric behaviour of titanium doped CoFe2O4 NP’s. The synthesis of Co1+xTixFe2-2xO4 (where, 0.0 x 0.5) nanoparticles was performed using self generated combustion technique. The prepared NP’s were characterized by X-ray diffraction technique (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) technique to analyze the structural and elastic properties. The analysis of XRD patterns confirms the formation of single phase spinel cubic structure of all the prepared samples. The diffractograms obtained at room temperature were used for Rietveld refinement to determine the lattice constant, oxygen position, average crystallite size etc. parameters. The elastic modules were investigated through vibrational bands in FTIR spectra. The band positions in FT-IR spectra confirmed the octahedral [B] and tetrahedral (A) stretching which evident the ferrite skeleton. The plot of DC electrical resitivity with respect to temperature shows the semiconducting behaviour of the nanoparticles. The activation energy determined through resistivity plots, show decreasing nature with incrementing Ti4+ doping in cobalt ferrite. The dielectric parameters decreased exponentially with increasing frequency and with Ti doping.
