Abstract

La0.5Ba0.5CoO2.87 has been characterized with neutron and synchrotron powder diffraction and magnetization measurements. This compound was shown to have a cubic crystal structure at temperatures above 200 K whereas slightly above the Curie point Tc ∼ 170 K the structural separation into two different pseudocubic phases gradually develops upon cooling. The structural transformation is reversible. At 2 K the sample consists of G-type antiferromagnetic oxygen-poor and ferromagnetic oxygen-rich phases (approximately 33 and 66%, respectively).
