The distribution of local blocking temperatures (TBi) in an exchange-coupled half-metallic-Fe3O4–antiferromagnetic-Cr45.5Mn45.5Pt9 system (in atomic %) was investigated, with the aim of confirming thermal stability of unidirectional anisotropy induced in Fe3O4 film, which has hard magnetic properties. The distribution of TBi was mostly at or around 265 °C. This distribution in the Fe3O4–CrMnPt system was equivalent or superior to that found in a previously studied soft magnetic-Ni81Fe19–antiferromagnetic-Pt50Mn50 system, where PtMn had been used in a giant magnetoresistance device as the standard antiferromagnetic material for the exchange-biased layer. These results make it reasonable to conclude that the exchange coupled Fe3O4–CrMnPt system has excellent thermal stability.

    We report an observation of anomalous anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) in bilayered La1.2Sr1.8Mn2O7 single crystals. A giant AMR is found to be 80% under a magnetic field of 1 T near the metal-insulator transition temperature, where AMR is defined as...

    Giant magnetoresistance in Hg 1−x−y Mn x Fe y Te crystals is caused by clusters with “antiferromagnetic” (Mn-Te-Mn-Te, Mn-Te-Fe-Te) and “ferromagnetic” (Fe-Fe-Fe) ordering. The effect is due to the fact that the charge carriers taking part in electric current...

    The p-n junction made by colossal magnetoresistance materials, such as La0.7Ce0.3MnO3/La0.7Ca0.3MnO3, has great interest for its potential applications. However, the physics of the magnetic state and transport properties of the interface still remains open. In this article, bilayer...
