Temperature-Dependent Structural Behaviour of Samarium Cobalt Oxide
MetadataShow full item record
The crystal structure and thermal expansion of the perovskite samarium cobalt oxide (SmCoO3) have been determined over the temperature range 295–1245 K by Rietveld analysis of X-ray powder diffraction data. Polycrystalline samples were prepared by a sol–gel synthesis route followed by high-temperature calcination in air. SmCoO3 is orthorhombic (Pnma) at all temperatures and is isostructural with GdFeO3. The structure was refined as a distortion mode of a parent structure. The thermal expansion was found to be non-linear and anisotropic, with maximum average linear thermal expansion coefficients of 34.0(3) × 10−6, 24.05(17) × 10−6, and 24.10(18) × 10−6 K−1 along the a-, b-, and c-axes, respectively, between 814 and 875 K.
