Abstract: The aluminum and cobalt-doped zinc oxide, (Al and Co-doped ZnO) structural and optical properties were analyzed and investigated. The composite was synthesized by combustion procedure that grants multiple financial benefits over other techniques. X-ray diffraction analysis, a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM), and UV Vis spectroscopy analyses were produced to provide a better understanding of the physical characteristics of aluminum and cobalt Doped ZnO. The structure of crystal in the Quartz phase is demonstrated by X-ray diffraction. High-resolution scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image shows the morphology of the composite which is hetrogenous mixture. VSM reveals the magnetic property of the material. The material was found to be paramagnetic in nature since the magnetization is greater than 1. Furthermore, UV – vis absorption spectroscopy has examined the optical properties of Al and Co-doped ZnO. The expected outcome is to study and analyse the results of the material.
