The effects of magnetic doping on a EuB6 single crystal were investigated based on magnetic and transport measurements. A modest 5% Sm substitution for Eu changes the magnetic and transport properties dramatically and gives rise to concurrent antiferromagnetic and metal-insulator transitions (MITs) from ferromagnetic MIT for EuB6. Magnetic doping simultaneously changes the itinerant carrier density and the magnetic interactions. We discuss the origin of the concurrent magnetic MIT in Eu1-xSmxB6.

    We have investigated the magnetotransport and magnetic properties of La0.75Sr0.25MnO3/PrBa2Cu3O7-δ superlattices. Magnetic hysteresis loops show the expected ferromagnetic behavior, although the saturation magnetization is smaller than the expected value based on nominal layer thickness. We...

    The physical properties of manganites depend strongly on sample morphology, probably due to strain. The authors investigate the influence of NdGaO3 substrates on the limit of the ferromagnetic-metallic phase field in La1-xCaxMnO3, doping with x=1% resolution. Films with x=0.40 show a...

    The precursor of the metal-insulator transition is studied at ab initio level in linear chains of equally spaced lithium atoms. In particular, full configuration interaction calculations (up to 1×109 determinants) are performed, in order to take into account the different nature of the wave...

    The magnetically driven metal-insulator transition (MIT) was predicted by Slater in the fifties. Here a long-range antiferromagnetic (AF) order can open up a gap at the Brillouin electronic band boundary regardless of the Coulomb repulsion magnitude. However, while many low-dimensional organic...

    For VO2-based two-terminal devices, the first-order metal-insulator transition (MIT, jump) is controlled by an applied voltage and temperature, and an intermediate monoclinic metal phase between the MIT and the structural phase transition (SPT) is observed. The conductivity of this phase...

    The effect of pressure on the metal–insulator transition in manganites with a broad range of bandwidths is investigated. A critical pressure is found at which the metal–insulator transition temperature, T[sub MI], reaches a maximum value in every sample studied. The origin of this...

    We have used the lattice-mismatch epitaxial strain, induced by the constraint of epitaxy, to tune the metal-insulator (M-I) transition temperature of NdNiO[sub 3] films grown on Si(100) substrate. Films were integrated with the Si(100) substrate using several combinations of thin buffer layers....

    An abrupt first-order metal-insulator transition (MIT) as a current jump has been observed by applying a dc electric field to Mott insulator VO2-based two-terminal devices. The size of the jumps was measured to be asymmetrical depending on the direction of the applied voltage due to heating...

    The authors present a systematic study of high-pressure effects on electronic structure and magnetism in 3d transition metals (Fe, Co, and Ni) based on x-ray magnetic circular dichroism measurements. The data show that the net magnetic moment in Fe vanishes above 18 GPa upon the transition to...
