Metallicity and positive magnetoresistance induced by Pb substitution in a misfit cobaltate crystal.


We have synthesized single crystals of the misfit-layered cobalt oxide, [Bi(1.5)Pb(0.5)Sr(2)O(4-δ)][CoO(2)](1.86), with quadruple NaCl-type layers, using a flux method, and measured their transport properties. From structural refinements, it is found that the modulation in the BiO layer observed in [Bi(1.74)Sr(2)O(4-δ)](RS)[CoO(2)](1.82) is suppressed by Pb… (More)
