Structural, Magnetic and Transport Properties of Layered Cobaltites LnBaCo2O5+x
Structural and magnetic properties have been investigated for the series of layered perovskite compounds LnBaCo2O5+x (Ln – rare earth metal) with different oxygen contents and thermal treatment history. Transport properties were studied at applied magnetic fields on TbBaCo2O5.5 single crystal grown by Travel Floating Zone Method (TSFZ). Oxygen isotope effect on metal-insulator transition was investigated for compounds with different rare earth cations.
