Polycrystalline bulk samples of BaSn1-xFexO3, with x = 0.03, 0.04 and 0.05 were prepared by solid-state reaction method. These Fe-doped BaSnO3 systems exhibit ferromagnetism at room temperature with an average magnetic moment of 0.047, 0.038 and 0.025μB/Fe and Curie temperature of 510, 462 and 446 K, respectively. The observed magnetic properties are not attributed to any of the known impurity phases or clusters. The presence of ferromagnetic interaction at room temperature is supported by the ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) signals observed in the electron spin resonance spectra. The ferromagnetic order between Fe-ions is expected to be mediated by an electron trapped at the oxygen anion vacancy, called the F-centre exchange (FCE) interaction. © 2008 Elsevier B.V.
