Structural, electromagnetic, and dielectric properties of Li0.4Fe2.4Zn0.2O4 lithium-zinc ferrite sintered by 2.4 MeV pulsed electron beam heating at 1050 °С for 2 h were investigated. The formation of ferrite with a single-phase cubic spinel structure was confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis. The average grain size of ferrite ceramic was determined by SEM analysis and its value was 1.7 µm. The radiation-thermal sintered samples are characterized by a saturation magnetization of 67.8 emu/g, the Curie temperature of 508 °C, AC electrical resistivity of 2.4×104 Ω cm (at 25 °C). The frequency dependences of permittivity and the loss tangent were obtained in (20 – 2×106) Hz frequency range. The behavior of ε′ is characterized by high dispersion caused by relaxation polarization in the investigated frequency range. The results were compared to the LiZn ferrite characteristics sintered by traditional thermal heating.
