Absence of a polar phase in perovskite chromite $$R$$CrO$$_{3}$$ ($$R$$=La and Pr)

Yoshii, Kenji ; Ikeda, Naoshi*; Shimojo, Yutaka; Ishii, Yoshinobu*

Magnetic and dielectric properties have been studied for LaCrO$$_{3}$$, PrCrO$$_{3}$$, and their solid solution La$$_{0.5}$$Pr$$_{0.5}$$CrO$$_{3}$$, belonging to a family of ferroelectricorthochromite series $${it R}$$CrO$$_{3}$$ ($${it R}$$: rare earths). The magnetic measurements confirm that the material shows canted antiferromagnetic ordering at 240-288 K. Neutron diffraction patterns could be fitted with the centrosymmetric $${it Pnma}$$, which is different from the non-centrosymmetric structure proposed for the ferroelectric phase of NdCrO$$_{3}$$. The large dielectric constants are likely due to the hopping of charge carriers as proposed previously for other chromites.
