Title: Crystal and magnetic structures of SrBi{sub 0.2}Tb{sub 0.8}O{sub 3} via neutron diffraction

Abstract

Crystal and magnetic structures of SrBi{sub 0.2}Tb{sub 0.8}O{sub 3} have been studied {ital via} neutron powder diffraction. As many other perovskites, SrBi{sub 0.2}Tb{sub 0.8}O{sub 3} is orthorhombic, Pbnm space group, with a=5.8948(2){Angstrom}, b=5.9741(2){Angstrom}, and c=8.3793(3){Angstrom} at T=300K. Magnetic-susceptibility measurements yield antiferromagnetic order with the paramagnetic Curie temperature {theta}{sub P}={minus}34.9K and the effective magnetic moment {mu}{sub eff}=8.12{mu}{sub B}/Tb. This proves that the substitution of Bi for Tb in SrTbO{sub 3} does not affect the valency of Tb which remains close to +4. Bismuth occurs as a mixture of Bi{sup +3} and Bi{sup +5} giving the effective valency also close to +4. Two magnetic transitions are observed: at T{sub N}=25.5K and T{sub N}=5.1K. A collinear structure, with Tb magnetic moments parallel to the {bold b} axis exists for T{sub N}{le}T{le}T{sub N}. Below T{sub N}, a small antiferromagnetic component develops parallel to the {bold c} axis, giving rise to the noncollinear antiferromagnetic structure. Both magnetic phases can be described within the Pbnm magnetic space group. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
