Study of Nonstoichiometry and Physical Properties of the Nd1-x(Ba0.40Mg0.60)1+xFeO4-y System
Chul Hyun Yo*, Kwon Sun Roh, Soon Ho Chang
A series of samples of the Nd1-x(Ba0.40Mg0.60)1+xFeO4-y (x=0.00, 0.10, 0.20, and 0.30) system has been synthesized at 1450 ℃ under an atmospheric air pressure. The x-ray powder diffraction analysis of the solid solutions assigns the structure of all the compositions to orthorhombic system. Mohr salt analysis shows that τ and y values increase with x value and nonstoichiometric chemical formulas of the system can be formulated from the x, τ, and y values. Oxygen vacancies are distributed along c-axis in the perovskite layer. The magnetic ordering temperature remains unchanged with x value. Electrical conductivity and activation energy depend only on the mixed valence state of Fe ion. Conduction mechanism can be suggested as the hopping of electron between eg orbitals of Fe3+ and Fe4+ ions through Fe3+-O-Fe4+ bonds. Magnetic susceptibility and electrical conductivity are discussed with the nonstoichiometric chemical formulas.
