Title: High pressure structure studies of 6H-SrIrO{sub 3} and the octahedral tilting in 3C-SrIrO{sub 3} towards a post-perovskite

Abstract

The high pressure behaviors of the two perovskite structures (hexagonal 6H-SrIrO{sub 3} and orthorhombic 3C-SrIrO{sub 3}) have been studied in diamond anvil cells to 43 and 60 GPa, respectively, using synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction. 6H-SrIrO{sub 3} was first synthesized at ambient pressure and subsequently transformed into 3C-SrIrO{sub 3} in a large volume press at 8.8 GPa and 1000 °C. Both polymorphs were found to retain the initial symmetry up to the highest pressures measured, but in the case of 6H-SrIrO{sub 3}, two anomalies were identified: a change in the axial compressibilities at 24 GPa and a change in both the axial and volume compressibilities at 32 GPa. Fitting a 3rd order Birch-Murnaghan equation of state to the obtained P-V data yielded bulk moduli of K{sub 0}=151.5(12) GPa (fitted range 0

  • The oxygen octahedral tilted domains in 0.90(Bi{sub 1/2}Na{sub 1/2})TiO{sub 3}-0.5(Bi{sub 1/2}K{sub 1/2})TiO{sub 3}-0.5BaTiO{sub 3} lead-free perovskite piezoelectric ceramic have been studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Selected-area electron diffraction patterns shows the (1/2)ooo and (1/2)ooe reflections, indicating the presence of antiphase (a{sup -}a{sup -}a{sup -}) and in-phase (a{sup o}a{sup o}c{sup +}) octahedral tilting, respectively. The morphology and distributions of these tilted domains are shown in the centered dark-field images. Further, the Bragg-filtered high-resolution TEM image reveals that the size of the in-phase tilted domains varies from 1 to 8 nm across. The ceramic contains the mixture of nontilted and variantsmore » of the antiphase and in-phase tilted domains.« less
  • The post-perovskite (pPv) is the high-pressure phase of some highly distorted perovskites. The pPv phase of MgSiO{sub 3} stabilized under 125 GPa and 2000 K cannot be quenched to ambient pressure. In contrast, the pPv CaIrO{sub 3} can be synthesized under a modest pressure or even at ambient pressure. However, the pPv CaIrO{sub 3} has not been fully characterized. We report here systematic structural studies, measurements of transport and magnetic properties including critical phenomena, specific heat, and thermal conductivity in a series of samples Ca{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}IrO{sub 3} synthesized under high pressure. The Ca{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}IrO{sub 3} samples exhibit anmore » evolution from the pPv phase to the perovskite phase. We have also prepared the perovskite (Pv phase) CaIrO{sub 3} with the wet chemical method. Rietveld refinements of the pPv and Pv phase CaIrO{sub 3} have been made based on high-resolution synchrotron diffraction. In comparison with effects of the chemical substitution on the crystal structure and physical properties, we have studied the structure and magnetic properties of the pPv CaIrO{sub 3} under hydrostatic pressure. Results have been discussed in the context of orbital ordering biased on the intrinsic structural distortion and the strong spin-orbit coupling that is much enhanced in these 5d oxides with the pPv structure.« less
  • NaNiF{sub 3} perovskite was found to transform to post-perovskite at 16-18 GPa and 1273-1473 K. The equilibrium transition boundary is expressed as P (GPa)=-2.0+0.014 Multiplication-Sign T (K). Structure refinements indicated that NaNiF{sub 3} perovskite and post-perovskite have almost regular NiF{sub 6} octahedra consistent with absence of the first-order Jahn-Teller active ions. Both NaNiF{sub 3} perovskite and post-perovskite are insulators. The perovskite underwent a canted antiferromagnetic transition at 156 K, and the post-perovskite antiferromagnetic transition at 22 K. Magnetic exchange interaction of NaNiF{sub 3} post-perovskite is smaller than that of perovskite, reflecting larger distortion of Ni-F-Ni network and lower dimension ofmore » octahedral arrangement in post-perovskite than those in perovskite. - Graphical abstract: Perovskite-post-perovskite transition in NaNiF{sub 3} at high pressure Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer NaNiF{sub 3} perovskite (Pv) transforms to post-perovskite (pPv) at 16 GPa and 1300 K. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The equilibrium transition boundary is expressed as P (GPa)=-2.0+0.014 T (K). Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Antiferromagnetic transition occurs at 156 K in Pv and 22 K in pPv.« less
