On the structural and magnetic properties of the double perovskite Nd2NiMnO6Nd2NiMnO6
Journal article, 2019

The structural, electronic and magnetic properties of phase pure and stoichiometric samples of the double perovskite Nd 2NiMnO 6 have been investigated with a combination of X-ray and neutron diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and magnetometry. It is found that the monoclinic space group P2 1/ n best describes the crystal structure of Nd 2NiMnO 6. Photoectron spectroscopy revels a mixed valence of the transition metal sites where Ni has 3+/2+ oxidation states and Mn has 3+/4+. The compound orders ferromagnetically at ∼195 K. The magnetic structure was determined from the refinement of the neutron diffraction data. The results suggests that the B-site magnetic moments align along the crystallographic a-direction.
