Title: Critical behavior and non-universal low-field magnetic scaling in La{sub 1-x}Bi{sub x}MnO{sub 3} (x=0.4 & 0.6) perovskite manganite oxide

We report on critical behavior in La{sub 1-x}Bi{sub x}MnO{sub 3} (x=0.4 & 0.6) perovskite manganite oxide by studying AC susceptibility, χ, measured at randomly chosen low magnetic fields (H=9.45 Oe to 0.95 Oe) at fixed frequency of f=131 Hz. The samples exhibit non-uniformity in their magnetic spin interactions around paramagnetic-to-ferromagnetic transition temperature (T{sub C}). By non-universal low-field magnetic scaling of AC χ given as, χ{sup −1}-χ{sup −1}(T{sub C}) ∼ (T/T{sub C}−1){sup γ} ≡ τ{sup γ} the magnetic interactions in the samples around T{sub C} has been studied. The linear fit to ln (χ{sup −1} - χ{sub C}{sup −1}) vs. ln (T/T{sub C}-1) gives the values of critical exponent ‘γ’ under applied magnetic fields. The values of γ is found to be ∼1.48±0.007 for the sample with x=0.4 and ∼1.36±0.004 for x=0.6 at 0.95 Oe lie in the context of 3D Heisenberg type spin interactions. The profound 3D Heisenberg type spin interactions arises due to the phase separation effect for x=0.4 and breaking of ferromagnetic order and induced Bi{sup 3+} (6S{sup 2}) − O{sup 2−} (2P{sup 6}) lattice distortions for x=0.6 as discussed in manuscript.
