    Abstract

    The electronic states of Sr 1-xNd xMnO 3 with the simple perovskite structure are characterized by a three-dimensional highly-correlated electronic system. To understand the detailed features of the A- and CE-type antiferromagnetic states in this system, their crystallographic features for x = 0.47, 0.48, and 0.50 have been investigated mainly by both x-ray powder diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. It was found at room temperature that the crystal structure for x = 0.47 was determined to have the monoclinic C2/m symmetry, while the orthorhombic Imma structure was confirmed for x = 0.48 and 0.50. The in-situ observation for x = 0.47 indicated that, in the heating process from room temperature, the C2/m-to-Imma transition occurred in the paramagnetic state, and that the A-type antiferromagnetic state appeared below about 200 K on cooling. In addition, the cooling from room temperature for x = 0.48 and 0.50 resulted in the direct transitions from the orthorhombic Imma state to the A- and CE-type antiferromagnetic states, respectively. Based on these features, we simply discussed the physical origin of the appearance of the paramagnetic state with the monoclinic symmetry for x = 0.47.
