The approach of the atomic pair distribution function (PDF) technique to study the structure of materials with significant disorder is considered and successfully applied to LiMoS2 and mesostructured MnGe4S10. We find that LiMoS2 is built of layers of distorted MoS6 octahedra stacked along the c axis of a triclinic unit cell with well-defined Mo-Mo bonding. Mesostructured MnGe4S10 is a three-dimensional framework of “adamantane-like” [Ge4S10] units bridged by Mn atoms.
Colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) in doped lanthanum manganite thin films (Lai.xMx, where M is a divalent ion) has been shown to result in a factor of 106 suppression of the resistance. The driving force for the CMR transition is thought to be the double-exchange (DE) interaction. Many studies of both the crystal structure and the local structure of the Lai.xMxMnO3 (with M = Ca, Sr and Ba, as well as Pb) system have now been carried out. As expected, these systems all show a strong coupling of the lattice to the CMR transition. On the other hand, neutron diffraction data and x-ray absorption studies for the Ti2mn2O7 pyrochlore, which also exhibits CMR, shows no deviations from ideal stoichiometry, mixed valency, or Jahn-Teller distortions of the MnO6 octahedron. We present results of crystallographic and local structural studies of these two important classes of CMR materials. compare the differences in structural response, and discuss the implications of these findings to our understanding of these materials.
