Abstract: The structural and magnetic properties of Sr(1x)Ca(x)Mn0.5Ru0.5O3 have been investigated. SrMn0.5Ru0.5O3 exhibits antiferromagnetic ordering, TN ≈200 K. Neutron powder diffraction of this perovskite indicates the presence of orbital ordering of the occupied Mn+3 dz2 orbitals, stabilizing the spin ordering corresponding to the AFM C-type structure. The substitution of smaller Ca+2 for Sr+2 on the A-site induces a change in the octahedral tilt system, (a0a0c−) to (a−b+a−) forcing a loss of this type of orbital ordering for x ≥ 0.2. This is accompanied by a crossover to a ferromagnetic ground state with 200K ≤ TC ≤ 300K even in the absence of long range chemical order. Magnetic data and neutron powder diffraction of CaMn0.5Ru0.5O3 and Sr0.5Ca0.5Mn0.5Ru0.5O3 reveal reduced magnetic moments and imply a complex magnetic behavior as well as a complete loss of orbital ordering for CaMn0.5Ru0.5O3. X-ray absorption studies show increased electron transfer from Mn to Ru. © 2021 American Physical Society
