Dielectric properties of nano-crystalline material LaFeO3.xFe3O4 with x = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4 at.% have been studied by impedance spectroscopy method. LaFeO3 was synthesized by sol-gel method resulting nano-particle. Then, it was mixed with Fe3O4 powder. The mixture powder was pressed to form pellet and then sintered at 1300°C for 1 h to form nano-crystalline of LaFeO3.xFe3O4. X-ray diffraction characterization at room temperature for all samples show two phases i.e. perovskite LaFeO3 (orthorhombic) as a main phase and Fe3O4 (cubic) as second phase. It is found that the crystallite size of main phase increases with addition of Fe3O4 until 0.3 at.%. The electrical properties as a function of temperature (300-500 K) and frequency (100 Hz - 1 MHz) are presented in Nyquist and Bode plots. It is observed that from equivalent circuit and their parameters, dielectrical properties are contributed by grain and grain boundary. The dielectric constant, ϵ′ were calculated by parallel plate method and their values reach up to 107 exhibiting typical colossal dielectric constant (CDC) material like behavior.
