Title: Estimation of dc transport dynamics in strongly correlated (La,Pr,Ca)MnO{sub 3} film using an insulator-metal composite model for terahertz conductivity

Temperature-dependent conductivities at dc and terahertz (THz) frequency region (σ{sub THz}(ω,T)) were obtained for a strongly correlated (La{sub 0.275}Pr{sub 0.35}Ca{sub 0.375})MnO{sub 3} (LPCMO) film using THz time domain spectroscopy. A composite model that describes σ{sub THz}(ω,T) for LPCMO through the insulator-metal transition (IMT) was established by incorporating Austin-Mott model characterizing the hopping of localized electrons and Drude model explaining the behavior of free electrons. This model enables us to reliably investigate the dc transport dynamics from THz conductivity measurement, i.e., simultaneously evaluate the dc conductivity and the competing composition of metal and insulator phases through the IMT, reflecting the changes in microscopic conductivity of these phases.
