Abstract

New Sr6Tb0.94Fe1.06(BO3)6 single crystals were obtained from lithium borate high-temperature solution growth under controlled atmosphere. Their average crystal structure was found to adopt the trigonal R-3 space group with lattice parameters a = 12.2164 Å and c = 9.1934 Å. A combined multiscale characterization approach, involving diffuse reflectance, X-ray photoelectron (XPS) and Mössbauer spectroscopies, was undertaken to establish the exact nature of the point defect disorder in this crystal structure. The FeTb× antisite disorder in the Sr6Tb0.94Fe1.06(BO3)6 single crystals is different from the kind of point defect disorder known to exist in the powder phase material counterpart. The absence of Tb4+ cations in the crystal lattice was established by XPS, and that of any phase transition down to 4 K was checked by specific heat measurements. The magnetic susceptibility curve was found to follow a Curie-Weiss behaviour in the 4–354 K temperature range.
