Abstract: Polycrystalline samples of La0.67Ba0.33(Mn1-xRux)O3 with x = 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15 and 0.2 have been prepared using solid state reaction. The effects of doping of Ru at Mn site on La-Ba-Mn- O ceramics, the characteristics and magnetotransport properties of CMR materials are investigated. The magnetoresistance (MR) effect is measured using the four point probe technique. The magnetoresistance defined as MR% = (Ro – RH)/RH x 100% was measured at a magnetic field of H ≤ 1T at 90K, 100K, 150K, 200K, 250K, 270K and 300K for the sample of doping x = 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15 and 0.2. Overall, MR drops slowly when temperature rises. All doping concentration gives small variation range (~2.7% to ~26.78%). The electrical property has determined by using standard four-point probe resistivity measurement in a temperature range of 30 K to 300 K. Metalinsulator transition temperature (Tp) shifted to lower temperatures as Ru doping is increased. In this paper the structural pattern and microstructure property have investigated via XRD. XRD patterns show that these systems are in orthorhombic distorted perovskite structures.

Abstract: The significant influences of substituting low concentration Dy at La- site for La0.667Sr0.333MnO3 perovskites compounds in structural, electrical and magnetoresistance properties have been studied. The polycrystalline samples (La1-xDyx)0.667Sr0.333MnO3 with x= 0.00, 0.02 and 0.10 were synthesized via conventional solid-state reaction in bulk. This work measured their resistivity properties with (below 1 Tesla) and without the presence of magnetic field (0 Tesla) as a function of temperature, microstructure and particle distribution and structural distortion using four point probe resistivity technique, X- ray diffractometer (XRD) and Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The resistivity in applied magnetic field or so-called magnetoresistance ratio is defined as MR% = (Ro – RH)/RH x 100 was measured at 90K, 100K, 150K, 200K, 250K, 270K and 300K. The highest MR% values for x=0.00, 0.02 and 0.10 are 15.3%, 15.5% and 20.6% at 1 Tesla respectively. The metal- insulator transition temperature, TMIT correspond to >300K, 298K and 230K of sample with x= 0.00, 0.02 and 0.10 respectively were observed from resistivitytemperature (R-T) curve.
