Abstract: We report results of a comprehensive study of the phase transition at TN (~643 K) as a function of particle size in multiferroic BiFeO3 system. We employed electrical, thermal, and temperature dependent x-ray diffraction studies in order to characterize the transition in a host of samples. We also carried out detailed magnetic measurements over a temperature regime of 2–300 K under a magnetic field of 100–10 000 Oe both on bulk and nanocrystalline systems. While in the bulk system a sharp endothermic peak at TN together with a broad feature, ranging over nearly ~100 K (T), could be observed in calorimetry, the nanoscale systems exhibit only the broad feature. The characteristic dielectric anomaly, expected at TN, is found to occur both at TO and TN across T in the bulk sample. The Maxwell-Wagner component due to interfaces between heterogenous regions with different conductivities is also present. The magnetic properties, measured at lower temperature, corroborate our observations...
