Sol-gel synthesized BaGdxFe12-xO19, (x=0.0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3) nanohexaferrites, have been explored for magnetic and microwave properties. X-ray diffraction studies revealed the hexagonal structure of the synthesized ferrites. The particle size was observed to be in the range 90-84 nm. The dc resistivity was found to be increasing with an increase in Gd3+ content and the variation of dc resistivity with temperature confirmed the semiconducting behavior of all nanohexaferrites. The observed values of saturation magnetization and coercivity, at room temperature, are 81.34 emu/g and 6020 Oe respectively which are very high as compared to the values ever reported till date. Additionally, we observed ultra low magnetic loss (0.004-0.01) and dielectric loss (0.004-0.06) over the GHz frequency region. The obtained results make these nanohexaferrites a competent material for antenna applications up to C-band.
