X-ray diffraction measurements under high and low temperature, and magnetic field have been performed for the doped La1-xCaxMnO 3+δ polycrystals to clarify the coexistent phases and their structures around the composition of x ∼ 0.5. By measurements at high temperature, the transition from a Pnma to an Imma space group symmetry phase has been firstly observed in this system at the temperature between 500°C and 600°C. At low temperature, the importance of the measurement of (131) reflection is noticed and the phase fraction of two similar Pnma phases with ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic states is determined. It is found that the application of the magnetic field by 5 T and the slight change of the composition x by 0.02 remarkably affect this phase fraction.
