Title: Magnetism and the spin state in cubic perovskite CaCo O 3 synthesized under high pressure

Abstract

Cubic SrCo O 3 with an intermediate spin state can only be stabilized by high pressure and high temperature (HPHT) treatment. It is metallic and ferromagnetic with the highest Curie temperature of the transition-metal perovskites. The chemical substitution by Ca on Sr sites would normally lower crystal symmetry from cubic to orthorhombic as seen in the perovskite family of Ca M O 3 ( M = M 4 + of transition metals, G e 4 + , S n 4 + , and Z r 4 +) at room temperature. This structural change narrows the bandwidth, so as to further enhance the Curie temperature as the crossover to the localized electronic state is approached. Here, we report a successful synthesis of the perovskite CaCo O 3 with a HPHT treatment. Surprisingly, CaCo O 3 crystallizes in a simple cubic structure that remains stable down to 20 K, the lowest temperature in the structural study. The new perovskite has been thoroughly characterized by a suite of measurements including transport, magnetization, specific heat, thermal conductivity, and thermoelectric power. Furthermore, metallic CaCo O 3 undergoes two successive magnetic transitions at 86 K and 54 K as temperature decreases. The magnetization at 5 Kmore » is compatible with the intermediate spin state t 4 e 1 of C o 4 + at the octahedral site. The thermal expansion of the Co-O bond length indicates that the population of high spin state t 3 e 2 increases for T > 100 K . The shortest Co-O bond length in cubic CaCo O 3 is responsible for delocalizing electrons in the π * -band and itinerant-electron ferromagnetism at T < 54 K . In our comprehensive comparison between SrCo O 3 and CaCo O 3 and the justification of their physical properties by first-principles calculation were made in this report. Partially filled π * and σ * bands would make CaCo O 3 suitable to study the Hund's coupling effect in a metal.« less
