My work is based on study of NiCuFe2O4, which is a mixed metal Ferrite. This Copper doped Nickel Ferrite has been synthesised by Citrate Gel method, which has resulted in a crystalline homogeneous sample of appreciable yield. A non magnetic dopant Cu is added to NiFe2O4 crystals, which causes modifications in structural, and physical properties. Structure determination is carried out by XRD technique, which confirmed the cubic structure a=b=d, &
