Abstract

The highly-correlated electron system Sr1-xSmxMnO3 (SSMO) with the simple-perovskite structure has been found to exhibit fascinating electronic states accompanying antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic orderings. It was, in particular, reported that the electronic state for 0.46 ≤ x ≤ 0.54 was characterized by the coexistence state consisting of the A-type antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic states. However, the features of the coexistence state in this Sm-content range have not been understood yet. We have thus investigated the crystallographic features of prepared SSMO samples with 0.46 ≤ x ≤ 0.55, mainly by transmission electron microscopy. As a result, all prepared SSMO samples were first confirmed to have the orthorhombic-Pnma structure at 300 K. When the temperature was lowered from 300 K, in the case of x=0.47, the disordered-Pnma state was found to be transformed into an orbital-modulated (OM) state accompanying an incommensurate modulation. The notable feature of the OM state is that the state becomes unstable with increasing Sm contents at 100 K. In other words, the OM state was never changed into the CE-type state with the orbital and charge modulations. In addition, no orbital-ordered state for the A-type antiferromagnetic ordering was also found for 0.46 ≤ x ≤ 0.55.
