Synthesis and Electromagnetic Properties of Ca2MTeO6 (M = Mn, Co, Mg)
Ordered perovskite-type oxides, Ca2MTeO6 (M = Mn, Co, Mg), were synthesized by a solid-state reaction method. All of samples belonged to space group P21/n and were insulators at room temperature. However, their electronic conductivities tended large gradually with a rise of temperature. Ca2MnTeO6 and Ca2CoTeO6 showed anti-ferromagnetism, and their Neel temperatures were 10 K and 7 K, respectively. The effective magnetic moment of manganese ion was 5.8 μB while its valence was bivalence in Ca2MnTeO6.
