Title: Magnetic properties of quadruple perovskite solid solutions Ca{sub 1–x}Y{sub x}Cu{sub 3}Fe{sub 4}O{sub 12} and Y{sub 1–y}Ce{sub x}Cu{sub 3}Fe{sub 4}O{sub 12}

Abstract

Magnetic properties of the quadruple perovskite solid solutions Ca{sub 1–x}Y{sub x}Cu{sub 3}Fe{sub 4}O{sub 12} and Y{sub 1–y}Ce{sub y}Cu{sub 3}Fe{sub 4}O{sub 12} are investigated. Ca{sub 1–x}Y{sub x}Cu{sub 3}Fe{sub 4}O{sub 12} shows continuous increase in the ferromagnetic transition temperature as x increases. Y{sub 1–y}Ce{sub y}Cu{sub 3}Fe{sub 4}O{sub 12} exhibits a ferromagnetic-antiferromagnetic transition in the vicinity of y = 0.5. These observations demonstrate the electron doping effect on magnetic properties of charge-disproportionated ACu{sub 3}Fe{sub 4}O{sub 12} phases.

  • Structures and magnetic and electrical properties of quadruple perovskites containing rare earths Ba{sub 4}LnM{sub 3}O{sub 12} (Ln=rare earths; M=Ru, Ir) were investigated. They crystallize in the 12L-perovskite-type structure. Three MO{sub 6} octahedra are connected to each other by face-sharing and form a M{sub 3}O{sub 12} trimer. The M{sub 3}O{sub 12} trimers and LnO{sub 6} octahedra are alternately linked by corner-sharing, forming the perovskite-type structure with 12 layers. For Ln=Ce, Pr, and Tb, both the Ln and M ions are in the tetravalent state (Ba{sub 4}Ln{sup 4+}M{sup 4+}{sub 3}O{sub 12}), and for other Ln ions, Ln ions are in the trivalentmore » state and the mean oxidation state of M ions is +4.33 (Ba{sub 4}Ln{sup 3+}M{sup 4.33+}{sub 3}O{sub 12}). All the Ba{sub 4}Ln{sup 3+}Ru{sup 4.33+}{sub 3}O{sub 12} compounds show magnetic ordering at low temperatures, while any of the corresponding iridium-containing compounds Ba{sub 4}Ln{sup 3+}Ir{sup 4.33+}{sub 3}O{sub 12} is paramagnetic down to 1.8 K. Ba{sub 4}Ce{sup 4+}Ir{sup 4+}{sub 3}O{sub 12} orders antiferromagnetically at 10.5 K, while the corresponding ruthenium-containing compound Ba{sub 4}Ce{sup 4+}Ru{sup 4+}{sub 3}O{sub 12} is paramagnetic. These magnetic results were well understood by the magnetic behavior of M{sub 3}O{sub 12}. The effective magnetic moments and the entropy change for the magnetic ordering show that the trimers Ru{sup 4.33+}{sub 3}O{sub 12} and Ir{sup 4+}{sub 3}O{sub 12} have the S=1/2 ground state, and in other cases there is no magnetic contribution from the trimers Ru{sup 4+}{sub 3}O{sub 12} or Ir{sup 4.33+}{sub 3}O{sub 12}. Measurements of the electrical resistivity of Ba{sub 4}LnM{sub 3}O{sub 12} and its analysis show that these compounds demonstrate two-dimensional Mott-variable range hopping behavior. - Graphical abstract: Structures and magnetic and electrical properties of quadruple perovskites containing rare earths Ba{sub 4}LnM{sub 3}O{sub 12} (Ln=rare earths; M = Ru, Ir) were investigated.

  • Perovskite-type compounds of general formula LaMn{sub 1{minus}x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 3} and LaCo{sub 1{minus}x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 3} (x = 0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0) were prepared by calcining the citrate gel precursors at 823, 923, and 1073 K. The decomposition of the precursors was followed by thermal analysis and the oxides were investigated by means of elemental analysis (atomic absorption and redox titration), X-ray powder diffraction, BET surface area, X-ray absorption (EXAFS and XANES), electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), and magnetic susceptibility. LaMn{sub 1{minus}x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 3} samples are perovskite-like single phases up to x = 0.6. At x = 0.8 CuO andmore » La{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} phases are present in addition to perovskite. Magnetic susceptibility studies show a ferromagnetic behavior that decreases with increase in x. Materials with not very clear morphology and crystals with definite structure are distinguishable by SEM for samples calcined at 1073 and at 1273 K, respectively. TEM patterns, for samples calcined at 1073 K, evidence almost regular hexagonal prismatic crystals connected to form linked structures and some spotty crystals, suggesting short-range ordered local defects. For copper-containing samples, calcined at 1273 K, a higher degree of defectivity (probably associated with the interaction of anion vacancies) and the occurrence of planar faults are shown by TEM.« less
  • The perovskite compounds SrTiO[sub 3] (semiconductor, cubic, and diamagnetic) and SrRuO[sub 3] (metallic conductor, orthorhombic, and ferromagnetic) form a continuous series of solid solutions of the formula SrTi[sub 1[minus]x]Ru[sub x]O[sub 3]. Increasing substitution of titanium by ruthenium led to a change in the crystallographic, magnetic, and electrical properties. As x increased the latter properties changed from semiconductor to metallic at x values between 0.40 and 0.50. A change from cubic to orthorhombic structure was also observed in the same compositional range as the Ru content increased. The compounds with x = 1.00, 0.80, 0.50, and 0.33 obeyed the Curie-Weiss law,more » with the Weiss constant ([theta]) and Curie constant (Cm) decreasing as x decreased. 40 refs., 9 figs., 3 tabs.« less

  • PbMn{sub 3}Mn{sub 4}O{sub 12} a quadruple perovskite was prepared by high pressure and high temperature synthesis. Powder X-ray diffraction (PXD) and differential scanning calorimetry reveal a structural phase transition at {approx}380 K. Rietveld refinement of the synchrotron room temperature data indicate rhombohedral symmetry (R-3) with a=6.43675(4) A and {alpha}=109.556(2) Degree-Sign . Similar 423 K PXD data refined in a body centered cubic cell (Im-3) with a=7.4283(9) A. The temperature variation of magnetization, shows a magnetic field dependent antiferromagnetic-like transition at 68 K, and dynamic fluctuations indicative of magnetic frustration. The semiconducting electrical behavior indicates a large decrease in the conductivitymore » near 68 K. The temperature dependence of the real part of the dielectric constant, {epsilon}{sub real} increases dramatically at {approx}68 K, and shows relaxor-type ferroelectric behavior as a function of frequency. The intimate coupling of magnetic, electrical and dielectric properties at 68 K in PbMn{sub 3}Mn{sub 4}O{sub 12} suggests possible multiferroic behavior. - Graphical abstract: Resistance vs. temperature plot showing drastically increasing resistances at temperatures below 68 K (a).
