Abstract [en]

Sr2FeMoO6 is a well-known double perovskite with exciting high-temperature magnetic properties. Through various magnetic and spectroscopic measurements, we collect compelling evidence here that this compound can be driven into a rare three-dimensional antiferromagnetic metallic state by heavy electron doping (70% Sr2+ substitution by La3+). Moreover, local structural study of these Sr2-xLaxFeMoO6 (1.0 <= x <= 1.5) compounds reveals unusual atomic scale phase distribution in terms of La,Fe- and Sr,Mo-rich regions driven by strong La-O covalency, a phenomenon hitherto undisclosed in double perovskites. The general trend of our findings is in agreement with theoretical calculations carried out on realistic structures having local chemical fluctuations, which reconfirms the relevance of the kinetic-energy-driven magnetic model.
