High-energy milling process on ceramic material was analyzed, it process generate modifications on morphology and particle size, the process showed the last one relation with the crystallite size, about of structural analysis Rietveld refinement let identify anisotropy with the variations on crystalline planes and deformations occasioned by milling process, the particle size decrease with the process, similar tendency was observed on the images obtained by Scanning Electronic Microscopy, an result in this study was the variation on magnetization without chemical reaction under non-stoichiometric conditions and the agglomerates sizes observed on samples it is by process.
