Crystal structure of Bi(0.9)Sm(0.1)Fe(1-x)Mn(x)O3 multiferroics.
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011
Bi(0.9)Sm(0.1)Fe(1-x)Mn(x)O(3), with x=0.00, 0.15, 0.30 have been synthesised by solid-state reaction. The structures of the materials, characterised via Rietveld analysis of high resolution powder neutron diffraction data, reveal a structural transition from R3c to orthorhombic Imma symmetry is complete for the x=0.30 sample. The antiferromagnetic ordering temperature, magnitude of the ordered magnetic moment at the B-site, and the dielectric constant all decrease as a function of increasing Mn content.
