Abstract

$La_{2-x}Sr_xNiO_4$ shows a maximum in the$C/a$ ratio around $\times= 0.6$ up to which composition the concentration of holes is equal to that expected theoretically. The material becomes a degenerate semiconductor above a certain temperature up to$\times= 0.8$, but is metallic at room temperature when $\times\geq1.0.$ All the compositions with$\times \geq 0.05$ are paramagnetic in the 15 -300K range. Based on these measurements, an electronic phase diagram is tentatively proposed. It is noteworthy that the antiferromagnetic order disappears at low doping levels in both $La_{2-x}Sr_xNiO_4$ and $La_{2-x}Sr_xCuO_4$, but metallicity is seen at 300K only at a much higher x value in the former system.
