Colossal Temperature Coefficient of Resistivity in Epitaxial Colossal Magnetoresistive La0.67Ca0.33MnO3 Films

  • S.I. Khartsev (a1) and A.M. Grishin (a1)


Epitaxial La0.67Ca0.33MnO3(LCMO) films have been grown by pulsed laser deposition technique on three single crystal substrates: LaAlO3, SrTiO3, and NdGaO3 having lattice mismatch with LCMO film of + 1.26 %, - 0.9 %, and + 0.18 %. We found the transport colossal magnetoresistive (CMR) properties were improved with the reduction of a film/substrate mismatch. Processing conditions for LCMO film on NdGaO3substrate were optimized as well as post-annealing process was employed to achieve a superior temperature coefficient of resistivity TCR = 35 %K−1 and the magnetoresistance MR = 66 % at 7 kOe. To our knowledge, these are the record CMR parameters achieved so far.
