Abstract:Electrical transport and magnetic measurements of the Ru-doped, layered manganite system, La1.2Ba1.8Mn2-xRuxO7 (x = 0, 0.1, 0.5, and 1), have been carried out in the temperature range of 5-310 K and in the presence of magnetic fields up to 10 T. The magnetic transition temperatures are found to be above room temperature, and colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) is present at low temperatures and even close to room temperature. Magnetoresistance (MR) is found to obey power-law behavior as a function of applied field with an exponent close to 0.5 at low temperatures.
