Layered ruthenates are prototype materials with strong structure-property correlations. We report the structural and physical properties of double-layered perovskite Sr3(Ru1−xMnx)2O7 single crystals with 0≤x≤0.7. Single crystal x-ray diffraction refinements reveal that Mn doping on the Ru site leads to the shrinkage of unit-cell volume and disappearance of (Ru/Mn)O6 octahedron rotation when x>0.16, while the crystal structure remains tetragonal. Correspondingly, the electronic and magnetic…

Emergent charge order near the doping-induced Mott-insulating quantum phase transition in Sr3Ru2O7
Search for novel electronically ordered states of matter emerging near quantum phase transitions is an intriguing frontier of condensed matter physics. In ruthenates, the interplay between Coulomb
