The dielectric properties and tunability with external magnetic and electric fields for LuFe 2-xMn xO 4 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) are systematically studied. It was found that the dielectric loss, the ferrimagnetic Curie temperature, and the conductivity reduce with increasing Mn doping. One of the most important results is that the room temperature dielectric tunability with low magnetic and electric fields can be achieved in these samples. The analysis demonstrates that the electron transfer between Fe 2+ and Fe 3+ is efficiently suppressed with Mn doping and thus results in the decreases of the leaky conductivity and the dielectric loss. Furthermore, from the studies on the combination of impedance and modulus complex planes for the samples with different electrodes, the tunability is found to be more closely related to the extrinsic effect than the intrinsic bulk effect.
