Abstract

The structural, superconducting and normal-state properties of La2MO4+δ (M=Cu, Ni, Co) were studied by neutron powder diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis and resistivity measurements. La2CuO4+δ was found to undergo phase separation near room temperature into antiferromagnetic La2CuO4 and superconducting La2CuO4.08. Single-phase, metallic, superconducting La2CuO4.08 was prepared under 25 kbar of O2 at 500 °C. The excess oxygen present as O= ions provides a doping mechanism analogous to alkaline-earth metal ion substitution.

La2NiO4+δ and La2CoO4+δ undergo a similar phase separation for 0.02<δ<0.12 and 0<δ<0.16, respectively. The structure of the interstitial excess oxygen defect was determined for a single-phase La2NiO4.18 sample. A different excess oxygen defect forms for material with 0≤δ≤0.02. All stoichiometric (δ=0) compounds have the same Cmca orthorhombic structure and are semiconducting and antiferromagnetic.
