  • The study of the manganites Ln{sub 0.5}Ca{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 1{minus}x}Ni{sub x}O{sub 3} (Ln = Pr, Nd, Sm) shows that the introduction of nickel on the Mn site provokes the disappearance of charge ordering (CO). But most important, it is demonstrated for the first time that doping with nickel induces a metal-insulator transition for Ln = Pr or Nd, in spite of the small size of the interpolated cations. All the compounds of these series exhibit colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) properties with resistance ratios (RR) ranging from 5.10{sup 3} at 75 K to 10{sup 8} at 60 K under 7 T, whereas themore » undoped phases either are not magnetoresistant (Ln = Pr, Sm) or exhibit much smaller RR (20 at 100 K for Ln = Nd). The magnetotransport properties of these Ni-doped manganites are compared to those of Cr- and Co-doped phases and their evolution is discussed, taking into consideration two antagonist factors: the average size of the interpolated cations and the size mismatch between Ln{sup 3+} and Ca{sup 2+}.« less
  • In this work the authors report a study of the photoinduced insulator-to-metal transition in manganese oxide perovskites of the formula Pr{sub 1{minus}x}Ca{sub x}MnO{sub 3}. The transition is closely related to the magnetic field induced insulator-to-metal transition (CMR effect) observed in these materials. It is accompanied by a dramatic change in the magnetic properties and lattice structure: the material changes from an insulating charge-ordered canted antiferromagnet to a ferromagnetic metal. The authors present an investigation of the transport and structural properties of these materials over the course of the transition (which usually takes about an hour to complete). The current-voltage characteristicsmore » exhibited by the material during the transition are highly nonlinear, indicating a large inhomogeneity of the transitional state. Possible practical applications of this novel type of transition are briefly discussed. They also report a high resolution X-ray diffraction study of the charge ordering in these materials. The temperature dependent charge ordering structure observed in these compounds is more complex than previously reported.« less
