  2. 2. Double perovskites • Ba2FeMoO6 (BFMO)/ Sr2FeMoO6 (SFMO) – tetragonal - alternating Fe and Mo surrounded by oxygen octahedra. • Ba/Sr occupy every hole created by 8 BO6 octahedra Crystal structure of ordered double perovskite: A2BB’O6 Ba/Sr Fe Mo O
  3. 3. Double perovskites• Half metallic band structure – conduction electrons 100% spin polarised• The Fe3+ 3d5 electrons are localised and the Mo5+ 4d1 electrons are itinerant.E E E EF EF EF N(E) N(E) N(E)NM FM HM
