BaHoxFe12-xO19 (x=0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4) nanohexaferrites were successfully synthesized for the first time by sol-gel auto-combustion technique. X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDAX) were utilized to investigate the different structural parameters and elemental composition. Incorporation of Ho3+ ions increased the dc resistivity while a decrease in the saturation magnetization (M-s), 66.68-57.08 emu/g, followed by decrease in Curie temperature (766.83-758.15 K), exchange integral (J), and anisotropy was observed. The obtained values of M-s. were found to be very high as compared to the values reported in the bulk form. The dielectric constant (epsilon') and dielectric loss tangent (tan delta) were investigated as a function of frequency and the behavior is explained on the basis of Maxwell-Wagner model and Koop's theory. Additionally, a maiden attempt was made to explore the BaH(o)xFe(12-x)O(19) nanohexaferrites at ultrahigh frequencies and observed ultra-low magnetic loss (0.004-0.01) and dielectric loss (0.004-0.06).
