X-ray absorption spectroscopy and magnetocaloric study of Pr$$_{1-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CoO$$_{3}$$ (0$$leq x leq$$0.5)

Matsumura, Daiju; Tsuji, Takuya; Yoshii, Kenji

We have conducted X-ray absorption spectroscopy study for perovskite cobaltite Pr$$_{1-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CoO$$_{3}$$ (0$$leq x leq$$0.5) to understand Sr doping effect and magnetocaloric measurement for Pr$$_{0.5}$$Sr$$_{0.5}$$CoO$$_{3}$$ to reveal the origin of magnetic anomaly at around 110 K. The extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) measurements at the Co ${it K}$-edge suggest that the average valence value of Co ions increases, the interatomic distance of Co-O bonding decreases, and the local distortion of CoO$$_{6}$$ octahedron increases as Sr is doped in PrCoO$$_{3}$$. The interatomic distance of Co-O bonding shrinks more greatly for the larger doping region. No temperature dependent electronic and structural changes were observed from Co ${it K}$-edge X-ray absorption spectra in the whole thermal range studied (17-300 K). The magnetocaloric effect of Pr$$_{0.5}$$Sr$$_{0.5}$$CoO$$_{3}$$ indicates the change of magnetic structure at 110 K.
