BiFeO3 shows G-type antiferromagnetic ordering with Neel temperature of 370C.
Data is presented on first- and second-phase transitions, melting lines, crystal structures of the stable and metastable phases, important phase properties such as the Curie and Neel temperature, and the superconducting temperature.
2] [9], which disproportionates below the Neel temperature at 44 K into two different phases, with different magnetic properties, whose relative proportions vary sharply with temperature in response to magnetostriction effects.
