Bulk BiFe03 samples prepared by the conventional mixed oxide route were investigated. High purity Bi203 and Fe203 powders were weighed according to stoichiometry and milled for 20 hours. The powders were pressed into cylinders (10mm diameter by 6mm thickness) at 100 MPa. The cylinders were heated at a rate of 3 degrees C/min at temperatures of between 700 degrees C and 900°C for times between 7.5 minutes and 48 hours. XRD spectra collected from both the as-sintered and 'bulk' (internal) surfaces showed the formation of additional Bi2Fe40, and Bi25Fe04o secondary phases coexisting alongside the main BiFeOs phase.
