Particulate composites of ferroelectric and ferrite phases having general formula (x) Bi0.5Na0.5TiO3-(1-x) MgFe2O4 (x= 0, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8 and 1.0), equivalently denoted as (x) BNT-(1-x) MgFO were synthesized by solid state reaction method. From X-ray diffraction analysis, the structural transformation from tetragonal to rhombohedral corresponding to BNT phase was observed in composites with x= 0.5 to x= 0.8. Shifting of (012) BNT peak towards left (x= 0.5, 0.8) and right side (x= 0.6, 0.7) observed due to occupation of Bi3+ ions at interstitial and substitutional sites into host MgFO lattice respectively. BNT produced strain in MgFO lattice. Scanning electron micrographs show closely packed microstructure with grain size variations from 0.62 to 2.90 aem. The value of magnetoelectric (ME) coupling coefficient increases from 2.42 (x= 0.5) to 4.79 (x= 0.8) mV/cm. Oe due to strain produced in MgFO and BNT lattices.
