Abstract

The oxygen content of La0.35Ca0.65MnOy was decreased by annealing the samples at high temperatures in vacuum with graphite powder nearby. Insulator metal (I-M) transition occurred upon dramatic decrease of oxygen content. Correspondingly the samples showed a large magnetoresistance (MR) and MR = C(M/M-s)(2) at 4.5 K up to relatively large M/M-s. The results were explained in terms of the variation of Mn3+/Mn4+ ratio and oxygen vacancy ordering induced percolation of the ferromagnetic regions. Spin-dependent hopping model can account for the variation of MR with M/M-s and the variation of C with the decrease of oxygen content.
