A Neutron Diffraction Study of Magnetically Ordered Ferroelectric Materials


Article Preview

Structural, magnetic, dielectric properties and Mossbauer effect were investigated on complex perovskite with composition AFe2/3B1/3O3 (A=Ca,Sr,Pb,Ba; B=W,Te). The most striking feature of this type of complex perovskites is the coexistence of magnetic and antiferroelectric types of ordering in a certain temperature interval. It was found that ferrimagnetic Ca and Sr compounds belong to a partially ordered perovskite structure, and antiferromagnetic Pb phase to a disordered one. The possible models for nuclear and magnetic structures were proposed in accordance with the observed dielectric and magnetic properties.
