Perovskites SrxCa1−xCrO3 attract much attention due to the controversy on the anomalous electronic state. In this study, we synthesized a series of SrxCa1−xCrO3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) single crystals under high pressure and high temperature conditions with self-oxidization. The crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction (XRD). With the increase of x, the structure transformed from orthorhombic to tetragonal to cubic. Antiferromagnetism was observed except for SrCrO3, and the TN decreased with increased x. All samples demonstrated semiconductive behavior by electrical resistivity measurement. View Full-Text
