Nickel–zinc ferrite nanoparticles are important soft magnetic materials for high and low frequency device application and good dielectric materials. Nickel–zinc ferrite nanoparticles with composition Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 were prepared using mechanical alloying to analyze the effect of sintering temperature on microstructure evolution of a single sample with dielectric properties. The single sample with nanosized pellet was sintered from 600 ℃ to 1200 ℃ and analyzed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) to investigate the phases of the powders and by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) for the morphology and microstructure analyses. Dielectric properties such as dielectric constant (
