abstract The phase content and sequence, the crystal structure, and the magnetic properties of perovskite solid solutions of the (1-y)BiFeO3-yBiZn(0.5)Ti(0.5)O(3) series (0.05 & LE; y & LE; 0.90) synthesized under high pressure have been studied. Two perovskite phases, namely the rhombohedral R3c and the tetragonal P4mm, which correspond to the structural types of the end members, BiFeO3 and BiZn0.5Ti0.5O3, respectively, were revealed in the as-synthesized samples. The rhombohedral and the tetragonal phases were found to coexist in the compositional range of 0.30 & LE; y & LE; 0.90. Magnetic properties of the BiFe1-y[Zn0.5Ti0.5](y)O-3 ceramics with y < 0.30 were measured as a function of temperature. The obtained compositional variations of the normalized unit-cell volume and the Neel temperature of the BiFe1-y[Zn0.5Ti0.5](y)O-3 perovskites in the range of their rhombohedral phase were compared with the respective dependences for the BiFe1-yBy3+O3 perovskites (where B3+ = Ga, Co, Mn, Cr, and Sc). The role of the high-pressure synthesis in the formation of the antiferromagnetic states different from the modulated cycloidal one characteristic of the parent BiFeO3 is discussed.
