Abstract :
The magnetic and transport properties of a hexagonal cobaltite related to the perovskite structure have been studied. By combining transmission electron microscopy, X-ray powder diffraction and iodometric titration, it is found that Ba0.9CoO2.6 crystallizes in the 12H structure [P63/mmc, a=5.6612 (1) Å and c=28.4627(8) Å]. Interestingly, this compound is a ferromagnet with a Curie temperature TC=50 K and a saturation magnetization image. This value is smaller than expected from the effective paramagnetic moment, μeff=3.7μB/Co, corresponding to an average spin image per Co, from which one would expect image. This suggests either a canted structure or a strong local magnetic anisotropy related to the crystal field of the CoOn polyhedra. A clear transition in the electrical resistivity is found at TC consistent with a spin scattering reduction as the sample becomes ferromagnetic. The spin–charge coupling is evidenced by the large negative magnetoresistance effect optimum near TC=50 K, with image.
