Abstract [en]

The Mn3+-containing oxide MnTaO4 was synthesized at 1050 degrees C and 2 kbar partial oxygen gas pressure. It has a rutile-type structure, space group P4(2)/mnm, with a = 4.7189(3), c = 2.9843(3) Angstrom, and a statistical distribution of Mn/Ta. The structure was refined by the Rietveld method using both X-ray and neutron powder diffraction. The refinements, and energy-dispersive X-ray microanalysis, indicate that the phase may contain a small amount of Mn4+ and have the actual composition Mn1.08(2)Ta0.92(2)O4. The magnetic susceptibility shows a maximum at 16 K and Curie-Weiss behavior at higher temperatures, with mu(eff) = 5.11(4) mu(B) per Mn atom. The susceptibility is consistent with spin-glass behavior: (i) the temperature at the susceptibility maximum is frequency-dependent and (ii) field cooled and zero-field cooled susceptibility curves differ below the maximum. Neutron powder diffraction data collected at 10 K does not show any sharp magnetic reflections, but a very broad reflection, with a full width at half maximum height of 7 degrees, at a position corresponding to the 100 reflection is seen.
