Title: Effect of size reduction on magnetic ordering in Bi{sub 0.2}Sr{sub 0.8}MnO{sub 3}

We present a comparative study of the temperature dependent magnetic properties and electron paramagnetic resonance parameters of nano and bulk samples of Bi{sub 0.2}Sr{sub 0.8}MnO{sub 3} (BSMO). Bulk BSMO is known to have a high T{sub N} ∼ 260 K and robust charge ordering (T{sub CO} ∼ 360 K). We confirm that the bulk sample shows an antiferromagnetic transition around ∼260 K and a spin-glass transition ∼40 K. For the nano sample, we see a clear ferromagnetic transition at around ∼120 K. We conclude that spin glass state, which is present due to the co-existence of antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic states in the bulk sample, is suppressed in the nano sample and ferromagnetism is induced instead.
