Charge ordering in Nd2/3Ca1/3MnO3: ESR and magnetometry study


The evolution of magnetic and electric properties of the narrow-band manganite Nd2/3Ca1/3MnO3 was studied by the electron-spin resonance (ESR), static magnetic field (dc) and resistivity techniques in the temperature range of 100-380 K. It was found that below the charge ordering temperature, T-CO approximate to 212 K, the compound is a mixture of the charge ordered and charge disordered phases in varying proportions depending on the temperature. The exchange phase process, when the amount of the charge ordered phase increases under cooling, while the amount of the charge disordered phase decreases is the most intense between-220 K and 180 K. At low temperatures, T < 160 K, the charge ordered to the charge disordered phase ratio is about 4:1, which is in excellent agreement with previous neutron diffraction data. Both a sharp decrease of the magnetic susceptibility and a huge resistivity increase are evident of the weakening of ferromagnetic correlations and suppression of the double exchange interaction across the charge ordering due to the localization of the charge carriers.
