|Abstract: ||The structure of two new phases in the bismuth manganite system are reported. The phases were determined by electron diffraction studies of two oxygen-deficient bulk samples. The first phase, a minority component of bulk BiMnO2.94 forms a n=2 Ruddlesden-Popper phase with space group Cmc21 . The second phase, from bulk BiMnO2.99 , is an orthorhombic structure
with spacegroup Pmn21 and a unit cell approximately equal to 4 × √ 2 × 2 √ 2 times the parent perovskite cell. Importantly both phases are non-centrosymmetric and offer further potential for multiferroic studies.|
