Ceramic Bi0.86Nd0.14Fe1-xTixO3 (0.02 ≤ x ≤ 0.1) compounds were prepared to study the structural evolution, microstructure, and magnetic properties. The structural analysis by X-ray diffraction and Rietveld refinement revealed a coexistence of the polar rhombohedral (R3c symmetry) and antipolar orthorhombic (Pbam symmetry) structures over the entire composition range, while Raman scattering spectroscopy detected not only the phonon vibrations of the R3c and Pbam but also the Pbnm symmetries. The microstructure investigation showed the small and large grain size regions corresponding to the R3c and Pbam/Pbnm phases, respectively. The dependence of magnetization on the Ti concentration suggested that the weak ferromagnetism observed in the compounds arised from the intrinsic collapse of cycloidal order rather than defect-induced magnetism. The magnetic aging observed at room temperature was explained on the basic of phase switching and spin frustration at the phase boundary. The influence of phase switching induced by an external electric field on the magnetic properties was also studied to reveal the contribution of phase boundary spins to the net magnetization.
