Influence of the Synthesis Method on the Microstructure and the Electronic Paramagnetic Resonance in Manganite of Eu0.05Ca0.95MnO3
We present a comparison between co-precipitation method and polyol mediated synthesis for obtaining sub-micrometric powders of Eu0.05Ca0.95MnO3 manganite. The samples synthesized were characterized by XRD and SEM; where the compounds have a single phase with the proposed stoichiometry. Microwave absorption response in poly-crystalline Eu0.05Ca0.95MnO3 samples that it is carried out by both methods, are compared. These measurements were carried out at X-band (9.4 GHz) with a dc magnetic field up to 6000 Gauss, at 300 K. Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectra show important differences between both samples, indicating that the processes of magnetic absorption and the temperatures of phase transition are sensitive to order/disorder local; that we associate with the preparation route.
