The x system shows an innate relationship between and ions by a unique double-exchange–mediated transport behavior. This is exonerated by the coexistence of and (range 330–245 for . For %, the hole carrier mass influences the transport property. X-ray absorption spectra suggest that the - match is due to the transport mediated by the redox pair and also due to the broad low-spin :4d conduction band. For x>0.2, obeys a modified variable-range hopping model, where , suggesting a random magnetic potential which localizes the charge carriers.
