Abstract

Soft x-ray resonant powder diffraction has been performed at the Mn L2,3 edges of A-site-ordered SmBaMn2O6. The energy and polarization dependences of the (1/4 1/4 0) reflection provide direct evidence for a (x2−z2)/(y2−z2)-type orbital ordering in contrast to single-layer manganite. The temperature dependence of the reflection indicates an orbital reorientation transition at [approximate]210 K, below which the charge- and orbital-ordered MnO2 sheets show AAAA-type of stacking. The concurring reduction of the ferromagnetic superexchange correlations leads to further charge localization.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
