Investigation of V Residence in Sr2(Fe1-XVX)MoO6 Compounds
Crystal structure and magnetic properties of the double perovskite compounds Sr2(Fe1-xVx)MoO6 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.1) have been investigated in this work. Rietveld refinement of the crystal structure shows that the cation ordering decrease monotonously with the V content. Magnetic measurement shows that saturation magnetization of the compounds decrease with increasing x due to the reduced degree of ordering. Analysis of saturation magnetization based on the ferrimagnetic model (FIM) indicates that the V atoms in Sr2(Fe1-xVx)MoO6 selectively occupy the Mo sites instead of Fe sites.
