Abstract [en]

A study of the crystallographic and magnetic structures of the double perovskite Sr3Fe2TeO9 has been carried out on a polycrystalline sample using neutron powder diffraction (NPD) data between 10 and 650 K. An analysis of the NPD patterns at room temperature has shown that this compound crystallises in the tetragonal space group I4/m with a = 5.5614(7) Å and c = 7.867(1) Å and has a partially ordered arrangement of Fe and Te at the B-sites. The compound undergoes an I4/m → Fm-3m improper ferroelectric phase transition near 460 K. A low-temperature ferrimagnetic ordering (below TN = 260 K) has been followed from the magnetisation measurements and sequential NPD data analysis. In good agreement with magnetic measurements the ferrimagnetic structure with very weak magnetisation is defined by the propagation vector k = (0, 0, 0). In addition to the obtained experimental results on magnetic and electric properties some aspects of magnetoelectricity in this perovskite are also discussed and compared with those of another quaternary oxide Sr3Fe2B6+O9.
