Ferromagnetism and magnetodielectric effect in insulating LaBiMn4∕3Co2∕3O6 thin films

Abstract : High quality epitaxial thin films of LaBiMn4∕3Co2∕3O6 perovskite were fabricated on (001)-oriented SrTiO3 and LaAlO3 substrates by the pulsed laser deposition technique. Magnetization measurements reveal a strong magnetic anisotropy and a ferromagnetic behavior that is in agreement with a superexchange interaction between Mn4+ and Co2+ ions, which are randomly distributed in the B site. A distinct anomaly is observed in the dielectric measurements at 130K corresponding to the onset of the magnetic ordering, suggesting a coupling. Above this temperature, the extrinsic Maxwell–Wagner effect is dominating. These results are explained using the Raman spectroscopic studies indicating a weak spin-lattice interaction around this magnetic transition.
