Effect of Substitution of Magnetic Metal Ions on Magnetic and Magnetoresistance Properties in LaSr2Mn2O7


Article Preview

The layered manganese oxides LaSr2Mn2-xTxO7 (T=Fe, Cr and Ni) has been prepared. The effect of substitution of transition metal ions for Mn on magnetic and magtoresistance properties has been studied. The compound has a tetragonal symmetry and the lattice parameters a decreases with increasing the doped content but the parameter c increases with x. It indicates that the MnO6 octahedron increase the distortion with x content. With the x increase, their ferromagnetic property was depressed. The Neel temperature TN was depressed gradually from 138K to 89K, 95K and 85K at x=0.3 for T=Fe, Ni and Cr respectively. Their magnetoresistance MR is gradually enhanced for all doped system. It suggests that the introduce of disorder in B-site have an important effect on the magnetic exchange and magnetoresistance because of the weaken of the double-exchange (DE) interaction.
