Scientific Highlights

Determination of the Crystal Structures in the A-Site-Ordered YBaMn2O6 Perovskite

Javier Blasco*, Gloria Subías, José Luis García-Muñoz, François Fauth, and Joaquín García
We present a complete structural study of the successive phase transitions observed in the YBaMn2O6 compound with the layered ordering of cations on the perovskite A-site. We have combined synchrotron radiation X-ray powder diffraction and symmetry-adapted mode analysis to describe the distorted structures as pseudosymmetric with respect to the parent tetragonal structure.
