The crystal structure, magnetic susceptibility as a function of temperature χ(T) in the range 5–400 K, and the hydrostatic pressure effect on χ at fixed temperatures T = 78, 150, and 300 K, were studied in perovskite-like compounds La1−xPrxCoO3 (x = 0, 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3). The obtained experimental data were analyzed using a two-level model with an energy gap Δ between the ground and excited states of the system that correspond to the spin values S = 0 and 1 for Co3+ ions. In this model, the…

Crystal field and magnetism of Pr3+ and Nd3+ ions in orthorhombic perovskites
Nine parameters characterizing the crystal field of rare-earth ions in the RMO3 perovskites are calculated using a first-principles electronic structure and the Wannier projection and good agreement between the experiment and theory is found.
The effects of Co3O4 on the structure and unusual magnetism of LaCoO3
A model is introduced that describes the ferromagnetic behavior of the interface regions and the unusual antiferromagnetism of the core regions of LaCoO(3) with an unusual temperature dependence.
Intermediate-spin state and properties of LaCoO3.
The electronic structure of the perovskite LaCoO3 for different spin states of Co ions was calculated in the local-density approximation LDA+U approach and shows that Co 3d states of t(2g) symmetry form narrow bands which could easily localize, while e(g) orbitals, due to their strong hybridization with the oxygen 2p states, form a broad sigma* band.
Temperature- and pressure-driven spin-state transitions in LaCoO{sub 3}
Crystal structure, spin state, and semiconductor-metal transitions of LaCoO{sub 3} in the 10-905 K temperature range were studied by neutron diffraction at high pressures up to 4.5 GPa and x-ray
Orbital ordering-driven ferromagnetism in LaCoO3 nanowires
The structure and magnetic properties of LaCoO3 nanowires are investigated as a function of the diameter in the temperature range of 5–300 K. Ferromagnetism below 85 K is observed in these nanowires,
Evidence for a low-spin to intermediate-spin state transition in LaCoO 3
We present measurements of the magnetic susceptibility and of the thermal expansion of a LaCoO 3 single crystal. Both quantities show a strongly anomalous temperature dependence. Our data are
Size-Dependent Structural and Magnetic Properties of LaCoO3 Nanoparticles
The structural and magnetic properties of LaCo0 3 nanoparticles with the particle size (D) ranging from ~60 to 450 nm prepared by a sol-gel method are investigated in this paper. It is found that all
Electronic states of PrCoO3: x-ray photoemission spectroscopy and LDA +U density of states studies
Electronic states of PrCoO3 are studied using x-ray photoemission spectroscopy. The Pr 3d5/2 core level and valence band (VB) were recorded using an Mg K α source. The core level spectrum shows that
