Title: Structure-property relationship in the ordered-perovskite-related oxide Sr{sub 3.12}Er{sub 0.88}Co{sub 4}O{sub 10.5}

Abstract

Synchrotron x-ray-diffraction patterns were measured and analyzed for a polycrystalline sample of the room-temperature ferromagnet Sr{sub 3.12}Er{sub 0.88}Co{sub 4}O{sub 10.5} from 300 to 650 K, from which two structural phase transitions were found to occur successively. The higher-temperature transition at 509 K is driven by ordering of the oxygen vacancies, which is closely related to the metallic state at high temperatures. The lower-temperature transition at 360 K is of first order, at which the ferromagnetic state suddenly appears exhibiting a jump in magnetization and resistivity. Based on the refined structure, possible spin and orbital models for the magnetic order are proposed.

  • A new strontium manganese oxycarbonate Sr{sub 5}Mn{sub 4}CO{sub 3}O{sub 10}, related to the perovskite structure, was synthesised, using a solid state reaction. the mean structure of this compound was solved by X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy in the P4/m space group. The cell parameters are related to the perovskite cell a{sub p} by the relation a=a{sub p}*{radical}5=8.795 {angstrom} and c=a{sub p}-3.785 {angstrom}. The original phase can be reduced from the stoichiometric perovskite SrMnO{sub 3}, by removing one [MnO{sub 5}]{infinity} row of MnO{sub 6} octahedra out of five, in an ordered way; this leads to the framework Mn{sub 4}O{sub 10}, builtmore » up from corner-sharing MnO{sub 5} pyramids, forming tunnels which are in fact fully occupied by carbonate groups. The acompound is antiferromagnetic with a Neel temperature T{sub N}=260K.« less
  • Solids of the composition La{sub 2{minus}x}Sr{sub x}Li{sub 1/2}Co{sub 1/2}O{sub 4} (x = 0, x {approx_equal} 0.2) crystallize in a superstructure of the K{sub 2}NiF{sub 4} lattice with a doubled unit cell in the (001) plane (space group Ammm; a = b = {radical}2a{sub 0}), caused by cation ordering between lithium and cobalt on the octahedral sites. The electronic structure of the Co{sup III}O{sub 6} and Co{sup IV}O{sub 6} polyhedra, which lie isolated in the lattice, were studied by various spectroscopic techniques (XANES, EPR, optical). The groundstates are low-spin in both cases (t{sub 2g}{sup 6} and t{sub 2g}{sup 5}, respectively), themore » ligand field parameters of Co{sup III} being close to those characterizing the high-spin/low-spin crossover.« less
  • The structure of PbBa{sub 0.8}Sr{sub 1.2}PrCeCu{sub 3}O{sub 9} has been determined with powder neutron diffraction techniques and profile analysis. The symmetry of this oxide is pseudotetragonal P4mm, but ED study shows that it is orthorhomic, space group Cmm2, with cell parameters a = 5.4816(1) {angstrom}, b = 5.4703(1) {angstrom}, and c = 16.4017(4) {angstrom}. The structure of this oxide corresponds to a triple intergrowth of single and double oxygen-deficient perovskite layers, with single rock salt and double fluorite-type layers. The analysis of the structure does not show any statistical distribution of copper and lead in the same sites, contrary tomore » what was found for similar compositions. The main original structural features are: (a) the disordered distribution of oxygen in the PbO layers and the distorted tetrahedral coordination of lead PbO{sub 3}L due to the 6s{sup 2} lone pair of Pb(II)(L); (b) the angle of the O-Cu-O bond of univalent copper (164{degree}); (c) the off-centering of rare earth elements in the 'O{sub 8}' cages, which move away from the copper layers; and (d) the displacement of Cu(II) inside the CuO{sub 5} pyramids toward the apical oxygen. A comparison with Pb{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}YCu{sub 3}O{sub 8}-type structures is made.« less
  • The crystal structure of Bi{sub 6}Sr{sub 8{minus}x}Ca{sub 3+x}O{sub 22} has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. This phase is the same as Bi{sub 9}Sr{sub 11}Ca{sub 5}O{sub y} that was previously studied by several authors as a secondary phase in the Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O system and coexists in thermodynamic equilibrium with the superconductors Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}CuO{sub 6} and Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}CaCu{sub 2}O{sub 8}. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2{sub 1}/c, with cell parameters a = 11.037(3) {angstrom}, b = 5.971(2) {angstrom}, c = 19.703(y) {angstrom}, {beta} = 101.46(3){degree}, Z = 2. The structure was solved by direct methods and full-matrix least-squaresmore » refinement. It is built up by perovskite-related blocks of composition [Sr{sub 8{minus}x}Bi{sub 2}Ca{sub 3+x}O{sub 16}] that intergrow with double rows [Bi{sub 4}O{sub 6}] running along b. The oxidation of Bi{sub 6}Sr{sub 8{minus}x}Ca{sub 3+x}O{sub 22} at 650 C allows the complete filling of the oxygen vacancies to form the double perovskite (Sr{sub 2{minus}x}Ca{sub x})Bi{sub 1.4}Ca{sub 0.6}O{sub 6} that shows 92.5% of bismuth in +5 oxidation state. The experimental high-resolution electron microscopy image and the electron diffraction pattern of powder samples along the [010] zone axis are in good agreement with those calculated from the structural model obtained by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The material is almost free of defects and the occurrence of planar defects is very exceptional.« less
  • Phase relations have been investigated within the Sr{sub 4}Nb{sub 4}O{sub 14}-Sr{sub 5}Nb{sub 4}O{sub 15}-SrTiO{sub 3} region of the SrO-Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}-TiO{sub 2} system with a view to clarifying the occurrence of perovskite-related phases. Most samples were prepared from oxide or carbonate powders heated in air at 1,350 C but some samples were also prepared by argon arc melting. Overall phase analysis was carried out by powder X-ray diffraction. Two phase lines contain a homologous series of layered perovskite phases. These are the Sr{sub n}(Nb,Ti){sub n}O{sub 3n+2} (4 {le} n {le} 7) series on the Sr{sub 4}Nb{sub 4}O{sub 14}-SrTiO{sub 3} linemore » and Sr{sub n}(Nb,Ti){sub n{minus}1}O{sub 3n} (5 {le} n {le} 7) on the Sr{sub 5}Nb{sub 4}O{sub 15}-SrTiO{sub 3} line. The microstructures in these homologous series were clarified by transmission electron microscopy. This revealed both ordered and disordered intergrowths of the perovskite homologues and allowed the defect microstructure of SrTiO{sub 3} in contact with the layered perovskites to be determined.« less
