Magnetic interaction and electronic transport in La0.4Bi0.6Mn0.5Ti0.5O3manganite

In recent years perovskite type manganites having general formula ABO3 have attracted significant deliberation because of their importance both for potential magneto-electronic applications and fundamental research in condensed matter physics.

The properties of these materials such as magnetoresistance, metal-insulator transition, charge, magnetic ordering, etc., have attracted significant attention [1]. The substitution of divalent or other trivalent rare earth ions at A-site results in varying the average cationic radii and introducing changes in bond angles and bond lengths. However, the B-site substitution induces disorder locally directly into the Mn-O network significantly affecting their magnetism and conductivity.
