The study of structural, optical, magnetic properties of Copper Ferrite Nanoparticles (CFN), Barium Ferrite Nanoparticles (BFN) prepared through the hydrothermal technique was carried out. The X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) pattern illustrates the formation of a single phase of face-centeredcubic structure for the CFN particles and orthorhombic structure for the BFN particles. Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) spectra revealed the confirmation of spinel form by attributing octahedral and tetrahedral bond vibrations at ν1, ν2 wave numbers respectively. UV–Visible spectroscopy technique was employed to determine the energy band gap. Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) images have shown the surface morphology as stone like particle with the agglomeration of nanoparticles, whereas Energy Dispersive X-ray spectrum (EDX) shows synthesized samples elemental evidence accurately as per the calculation. Moreover, the vibrating sample magnetometer measurements represent the particle that exhibits the super paramagnetic nature of hydrothermally synthesized copper ferrite particle.
