Abstract


In this study we report the effect of sintering temperature on the low field magnetoresistance
(LFMR) of La0.7Ca0.3MnO3 manganite synthesized through sol-gel technique. The
La0.7Ca0.3MnO3 has been sintered at 600°C, 700°C, 800°C, 900°C and 1200°C. The crystallite
as well as particle size also show strong dependence on the sintering temperature. While
the ferromagnetic – paramagnetic (FM-PM) transition temperature remains almost constant,
the metal – insulation transition temperature drop gradual and the low field magnetoresistance
(LFMR) increase with a decrease in grain size. We have analyzed our data based on the spin –
polarized transport of conduction electrons at the grain boundaries.
