A positive colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) has been discovered in an epitaxial multilayer p–n heterostructure fabricated with Sr-doped LaMnO3 and Nb-doped SrTiO3 by laser molecular-beam epitaxy. In contrast to the negative CMR of the LaMnO3 compound family, positive CMR is observed in the temperature range from 100 to 300 K. The largest value of the magnetoresistance (MR) ratio (ΔR/R0,ΔR=RH-R0), 517%, is one order of magnitude larger than that of simple p–n junctions of the same materials previously reported. A very large MR ratio, 297%, remains in a low field of 0.01 T. Even at a temperature as high as 300 K, a MR ratio as large as 17.3% is still observed. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
