Structural signatures of the phase transitions of compound. (a) The appearance in the INT phase of the (−2 0 2) Bragg peak indexed in the lattice and of the (1 0 −2) one in the LT phase indexed in the lattice are associated with the successive symmetry breaking during the continuous phase transition around 240 K and discontinuous phase transition around 206 K (vertical lines). Small anomalies are observed in the lattice parameters and (b), and and (c), given here in the HT lattice.

Projection of the crystal structure along (left) and (right) for the HT (top, 265 K), LT (bottom 150 K), and INT phases (middle 208 K). The change in translation symmetry along is associated with alternating tilting and ordering of the cations. In the INT phase, ordered and disordered channels alternate along the axis.
