Bi0.9Ho0.1FeO3 ceramic is prepared by sol-gel method. We investigated the effect of Ho element doping in the BiFeO3. We studied the microstructure, morphology and ferromagnetism for Bi0.9Ho0.1FeO3 ceramic by XRD, SEM and SQUID. It shows that Bi0.9Ho0.1FeO3 ceramic exhibits single phase of perovskite structure. The c/a rate is elevated from 1 to 1.009 with respect to BiFeO3. The grains of Bi0.9Ho0.1FeO3 ceramic shrink sharply compared with the ones of BiFeO3 ceramic, which is beneficial to the connection between grains and the density. Bi0.9Ho0.1FeO3 ceramic exhibits obvious ferromagnetism while BiFeO3 ceramic does not possess the macroscopic ferromagnetism at the RT. The magnetization sinks in the horizontal direction near the zero magnetic field. It indicates that Bi0.9Ho0.1FeO3 ceramics do not only show obvious ferromagnetism, but also could exhibit lower magnetic hysteresis loss.
