Cu- and Ni-codoped FeZnO particles with the wurzite structure were successfully synthesized at low temperature by a co-precipitation method. The samples were characterized using a vibrating sample magnetometer, X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectrophotometry and electron spin resonance. The results demonstrated that room temperature ferromagnetic order was observed in both samples and the magnetization was higher than that of Fe-doped ZnO. The correlation between the structural and magnetic properties is discussed.
