  • Ba{sub 3}TaFe{sub 3}Si{sub 2}O{sub 14} single crystals (sp. gr. P321, Z = 1), promising langasite-type multiferroics, have been grown by floating zone melting. An accurate X-ray diffraction study of Ba{sub 3}TaFe{sub 3}Si{sub 2}O{sub 14} single crystal has been performed using two datasets, obtained independently for two different orientations of the same sample on a diffractometer equipped with a CCD area detector at 295 K. Structure refinement is performed based on an averaged dataset: a = 8.5355(1) Å, c = 5.2332(1) Å, sp. gr. P321, Z = 1; the R factors of model structure refinement were found to be R/wR =more » 1.02/1.23% for 4552 independent reflections. Disordering asymmetry is revealed for the magnetic Fe ion in the 3f site and the Ba cation in the 3e site.« less
  • The complex perovskite of 0.75Pb(Fe{sub 2/3}W{sub 1/3})O{sub 3}–0.25PbTiO{sub 3} (0.75PFW-0.25PT) ceramic was prepared by the conventional oxide mixing method. The detailed microstructure of 0.75PFW-0.25PT ceramic was investigated. At room temperature, the TEM analysis reveals that only cubic structure (nonpolar) exists, which is different from the phase coexistence of cubic (66%) and tetragonal (34%) structure revealed by XRD. A mechanism dominated by a temperature rise due to electron-beam irradiation has been proposed. The XPS measurement confirms the mixed balance state of Fe{sup 2+} and Fe{sup 3+} in the as-prepared 0.75PFW-0.25PT specimen, which facilitates the formation of the defect dipoles with oxygenmore » vacancies, in turn resulting in the internal-bias field (E{sub i}) phenomenon. The appearance of weak magnetic interactions is believed relating to the presence of noncompensated magnetic moments in Fe-rich islands. These results provide key information for understanding the composition, defect, ferroelectric, and ferromagnetic properties in 0.75PFW-0.25PT ceramic.« less
  • Optical phonons of multiferroic Bi{sub 4}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 12}-BiFeO{sub 3} ceramic have been investigated by low temperature Raman scattering and infrared reflectance spectra. Anomalies at about 85 K can be observed from the temperature dependence of the Raman and infrared modes, which arise from spin-phonon interaction during antiferromagnetic to paramagnetic phase transition. It was found that the change of exchange interaction in magnetic phase transition can be induced by Fe-O-Fe octahedral tilting driven from the A-site atoms. Moreover, ferroelectricity-related displacement of Bismuth atoms suggests the coupling of magnetic and ferroelectric orders.
  • Far-infrared reflection and ellipsometry measurements on multiferroic PrFe 3 ( BO 3 ) 4 and SmFe 3 ( BO 3 ) 4 single crystals were used to investigate the interaction between lattice phonons and electronic excitations associated with 4 f crystal-field transitions. A temperature-dependent interference between two types of excitations was observed in PrFe 3 ( BO 3 ) 4 in which the frequency of 4 f crystal-field electronic excitation of Pr 3 + falls into the TO-LO frequency interval of the optical phonon mode near 50 cm - 1 (1.5 THz). Experimental data were explained on the basis ofmore » a theoretical model of coupled electron-phonon modes. The fitting procedure revealed the value 14.8 cm - 1 for the electron-phonon coupling constant. This rather large value points to an essential role played by the electron-phonon interaction in the physics of multiferroics.« less
