Alpha-Fe2O3 Synthesis by Sol-Gel Technique and Characterization [LAB MANUAL]

This semester, in the Nanoscience Lab, I was required to prepare alpha-Fe2O3(Hematite) by sol-gel method for my first experiment. This was a great experience as I learned a lot of new stuff and got to use cool instruments during the labs. Using my knowledge, and whatever I learnt, I have tried to create a detailed lab manual for the experiment for future students.

Alpha-Fe2O3 (Cell)

Objective:

To prepare alpha-Fe2O3 nanoparticles by sol-gel technique and study the effect of different annealing temperatures and heating times on the crystallite size using the peak widths of the diffractograms(XRD) of the differently prepared
samples.

Version 2

Here I am attaching a PDF version of the Lab Manual that I created. This is the version 2.0.
It contains observations about all the 4 samples. However, there are still some things that I need to add like the interplanar spacings and lattice parameter calculations and some info in the Results and Discussion section.

Version 1

Currently, the manual contains info about 2 samples, but it will be updated soon.

I'm a physicist specializing in theoretical, computational and experimental condensed matter physics. I like to develop Physics related apps and softwares from time to time. Can code in most of the popular languages. Like to share my knowledge in Physics and applications using this Blog and a YouTube channel.
