Abstract: The structural, magnetic, and electronic properties of NdFe0.5Mn0.5O3 have been studied in a comprehensive manner using various experimental and theoretical methods. Mn/Fe sublattice of the compound orders into a G-type antiferromagnetic phase close to 250 K where the magnetic structure belongs to Γ1 irreducible representation (Gy) unlike Γ4 (Gx) representation observed in most of the orthoferrites and orthochromites. The magnetic structure undergoes a complete spin reorientation transition with temperature between 75 and 25 K where the magnetic structure exists as a sum of two irreducible representations (Γ1+Γ2). At 1.5 K, the antiferromagnetic structure belongs entirely to Γ2 representation (Gz) with a small ferromagnetic component (Fx) due to Nd. The unusual spin reorientation and correlation between magnetic ground state and electronic structure have been investigated using phenomenological theory and first-principles calculations within GGA+U and GGA+U+SO formalisms. © 2017 American Physical Society.
