High resistivity in nanostructured Pb(Fe0.012Ti0.988)O3 system prepared by using polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) in chemical route is observed. The PVA acts as a surfactant to limit the particle size. The Fe substitution for Ti controls the chemical stoichiometry and reduces the lattice distortion, i.e., c/a ratio, and hence the transition temperature reduces with Fe content. The phase structure, morphology, particle size, dc resistivity, and dielectric and magnetic properties of Pb(Fe0.012Ti0.988)O3 nanoparticles have been characterized by x-ray diffraction, transmission/scanning electron microscopy, source meter, LCR meter, and vibrating sample magnetometer. The results indicate that the nanosize particles have high resistivity, which improves the dielectric constant at high-frequency region and increases magnetization of the specimens. The observed variable-range-hopping conduction mechanism indicates that Fe doping leads to the occurrence of local defect states in the PbTiO3 lattice. The dispersionless dielectric properties with low loss are observed up to 15 MHz. The dielectric properties are improved than those obtained by the conventional process. The initial permeability values do not exhibit much variation up to ferromagnetic transition temperature after which it falls sharply. The large value of saturation magnetization is observed at room temperature.
