Title: Structures and phase diagram for the system CaTiO{sub 3}-La{sub 2/3}TiO{sub 3}

Abstract

High-resolution neutron and synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction have been used to examine various compositions across the system (1-x)CaTiO{sub 3}-xLa{sub 2/3}TiO{sub 3}. The structures at room temperature were determined according to composition: in Pbnm for 0{<=}x{<=}0.5, Ibmm for 0.5<x<0.7, then I4/mcm for 0.7{<=}x<0.9, and finally in Cmmm for x{>=}0.9. Although the four structures are the same as those proposed previously in an X-ray diffraction study, the phase boundaries are somewhat different, in particular the Pbnm{r_reversible}Ibmm phase boundary has been extended from x{<=}0.4 to x>0.5 in the current study based on our high-resolution neutron diffraction data. From in situ measurements to identify structures above room temperature, an approximate composition-temperature phase diagram has been constructed, involving four temperature-induced phase transitions: Pbnm{sup {yields}}I4/mcm, Ibmm{sup {yields}}I4/mcm, I4/mcm{sup {yields}}Pm3-barm and Cmmm{sup {yields}}P4/mmm. - Graphical abstract: Phase diagram for Ca{sub (1-x)}La{sub 3x/2}TiO{sub 3} based on transition temperatures obtained from in situ neutron and synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction studies: depending on whether or not we have in-phase and/or out-of-phase octahedral tilting, whether we have long-range cation/vacancy ordering (the degree of ordering is indicated by shading), six distinct structures occur.
