Title: Type I antiferromagnetic order in Ba 2LuReO 6: Exploring the role of structural distortions in double perovskites containing 5d 2 ions

Abstract

The structural, electrical, and magnetic properties of the double perovskite Ba 2LuReO 6 have been examined in this paper. It is an insulator whose temperature dependent conductivity is consistent with variable range hopping electrical transport. A transition to an antiferromagnet state with type I order occurs below T N = 31 K. High resolution time-of-flight neutron powder diffraction measurements show that it retains the cubic double perovskite structure down to 10 K. High intensity, low resolution neutron powder diffraction measurements confirm the antiferromagnetic order and indicate that cubic symmetry is still observed at 1.5 K. The small ordered moment of 0.34(4)μ B per Re is comparable to estimates of moments on 5d 2 ions in other antiferromagnetically ordered cubic double perovskites. Finally, comparisons with related double perovskites containing 5d 2 ions, such as Os 6+ and Re 5+, reveal that subtle changes in structure or electron configuration of the diamagnetic octahedral cations can have a large impact on the magnetic ground state, the size of the ordered moment, and the Néel temperature.
