Perovskite structured LaTixFe1-xO3 (x = 0, 0.05, 0.15, 0.25) lanthanum ferrites were synthesized by conventional solid-state reaction. The structural Rietveld refinement and Raman analysis were conducted and confirmed that single-phase orthorhombic phase with Pbnm symmetry formed. The positions of the ions and their bonds of these ferrites were investigated. The spherical shaped morphology of these ferrites was examined. The quantitative chemical composition and distribution of these ferrites were confirmed. The excitonic absorption edge was observed at 590 nm; ascribed to the electronic transition from O2p→Fe3d and optical band gap values increased from 1.85– 2.02 eV as Ti concentration increased. The dielectric and magnetic behavior of these ferrites was studied. It is suggested that synthesized LaTixFe1xO3 powders with different properties could be tailored for different requirements.
