Systematic studies of structural, magnetic, electric transport, and specific heat properties have been performed on lightly Cr-doped molybdates SrMo1-xCrxO3 (0≤x≤0.10). Based on the analysis of structural parameter variations, the valence state of the doped Cr ions in SrMo1-xCrxO3 system is suggested to be +2. Cr substitution as low as x=0.025 is sufficient to drive SrMo1-xCrxO3 system from the Pauli-paramagnetic state to a ferromagnetic state. The Curie temperature TC increases monotonically with increasing Cr-doping content. All samples exhibit metalliclike transport behavior in the whole studied temperature range except for the x=0.10 sample. The magnitude of the resistivity increases monotonically with increasing Cr-doping level. The evolution of the magnetic and resistive properties with Cr-doping content x may be related to the narrowed d-band width due to Cr substitution. In addition, the temperature dependence of specific heat for all samples has also been studied.

    The lower than expected magnetization of imperfect Sr2FeMoO6 (SFMO) double perovskites is usually attributed to the presence of Fe at antisite positions that would be antiferromagnetically coupled to their regular neighbors. However, ab initio calculations suggest strongly that such defective Fe...
