LaFe0.5Mn0.5O3 solid solution films have been formed on SrTiO3(111) substrates using a pulsed laser deposition technique and their magnetic properties have been examined. The films showed ferromagnetic (or ferromagnetic) behavior with a Curie temperature of 380 K and the saturation magnetization was estimated to be about 1.5μB, per magnetic ion site (B site). The x-ray photoemission spectra indicated that this behavior was due to the partial ordering of magnetic ions (Fe and Mn ions) which is caused by the charge disproportion between Fe and Mn ions under the film formation conditions.
