Solid solution series of La1-ySryCo 1-xFexO3-δ were extensively studied in the past as cathode materials for solid oxide fuel cells. However, the crystal structure behavior of La1-ySryCo1-xFe xO3-δ solid solution series when La-ions are replaced with another rare-earth ion or metallic alkaline earth metal is at present not fully understood. Here we report X-ray powder diffraction measurements performed on samples of the Sm0.8Sr0.2Co 1-xFexO3-δ solid solution series. This study demonstrates that the average A-cation radius, as well as the Fe content (x), affects the structural modification of the A1-ySr yCo1-xFexO3+δ solid solution series significantly.
