Abstract: The synthesis and structures of the perovskites Ln1/3TaO3 are described. As the size of the Ln cation is reduced, the compounds display a sequence of structure: P4/mmm/La → Cmmm/Ce−Gd → Pmma/Tb, Dy → Pmc21/Ho, Er. Although apparently tetragonal in P4/mmm, electron diffraction patterns of Tm1/3TaO3 reveal this has a complex incommensurate structure. Likewise Gd1/3TaO3 appears metrically tetragonal, but electron diffraction and synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction demonstrate this is actually orthorhombic. The suppression of the spontaneous orthorhombic strain in Gd1/3TaO3 is thought to be due to the proximity to the first-order Cmmm−Pmma transition. Variable temperature studies show both Tb1/3TaO3 and Dy1/3TaO3 undergo a first-order Cmmm−Pmma transition upon heating. © 2008, American Chemical Society
