This report presents the synthesis of magnesium ferrite (MgFe2O4) by co-precipitation method and its subsequent characterization by using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) techniques. XRD results confirm the formation of single phase cubic spinel structure, having lattice constant from 8.3216 Å to 8.3252 Å. An infrared spectroscopy study confirms the presence of two main absorption bands indicating tetrahedral and octahedral group complexes, within the spinel lattice. We also report hopping length (LA and LB), strain (ɛ) and dislocation density (ρD) of ferrite sample.
