Electric-current-dependent resistance has been studied in epitaxial thin films of La[SUB0.7]Ca[SUB0.3]MnO[SUB3] and La[SUB0.85]Ba[SUB0.15]MnO[SUB3]. Attention was focused at the influence of the applied dc current on the resistance) of these epitaxial thin films in the absence of a magnetic field. A significant change in the ratio of the peak resistance at different currents or current resistance was found to be ∼23%-26% with a current density up to 8×10[SUP4] Acm[SUP-2]. For both La[SUB0.7]Ca[SUB0.3]MnO[SUB3] and La[SUB0.85]Ba[SUB0.15]MnO[SUB3] compounds, the dependence of the measured resistance on the current revealed a good linear relationship. Although the nature behind such an effect has not been well understood yet, the feature that the resistance in doped manganese oxides could be easily controlled by the electric current should be of interest for various applications such as field effect devices.
