Abstract : In this paper we characterize semiconformally flat spacetimes and a spacetime with harmonic semiconformal curvature tensor. At first in a semiconformally flat perfect fluid spacetime we obtain a state equation and prove that in particular for dimension $n=4$, the spacetime represents a model for incoherent radiation. Next we prove that perfect fluid spacetime with harmonic semiconformal curvature tensor is of Petrov type $I$, $D$ or $O$ and the spacetime is a GRW spacetime. As a consequence we obtain several corollaries.
Keywords : Lorentzian manifolds, conformal curvature tensor, semiconformal curvature tensor
