FIG. 1.

(a) XRD spectra of SCMO25 and SCMO60. Indexing is done in the orthorhombic setting of the Pnma space group. (b) Rietveld plot for SCMO60 sample. The experimental data points are indicated by open circles, the calculated and difference patterns are shown by solid lines. The Bragg positions of the reflections of the orthorhombic manganite are indicated by vertical lines below the pattern.

Temperature dependence of zero field cooled MZ FC (open symbols) and field cooled M FC (solid symbols) magnetization of SCMO25 and SCMO60 recorded in magnetic field H = 100 Oe, 1 kOe (a),(b), and 15 kOe (c),(d).

Temperature dependence of real (χ′) (a),(b) and imaginary (χ″) (c),(d) component of ac-susceptibility measured during heating at ac magnetic field of 10 Oe and different frequencies. Insets in (a) and (b): the inverse of the real part (χ′) of ac-susceptibility measured at 10 kHz. Dashed lines show fits to Curie-Weiss law. Insets to (c) and (d) show the inverse of the real part (χ′) of ac-susceptibility measured at 10 kHz and temperature dependence of H/M measured at 15 kOe.

Temperature dependence of H EB and M EB for LCMO25 (a) and LCMO60 (b) samples determined from hysteresis loops recorded within field range ±15 kOe after FC in 15 kOe. Solid lines in (a) are best fits of H EB = H EB(0)exp(−T/T 1) and M EB = M EB(0)exp(−T/T 3) for SCMO25, while the solid line in Fig. 6(b) represents fit of H EB = H EB(0)exp(−T/T 1).

Insets: zoom at low field part of the hysteresis loops measured at T = 10 K after FC and ZFC. Spontaneous magnetization M S, evaluated by linear extrapolation to H = 0 of the high field magnetization recorded after ZFC, is equal to M S ≈ 4.95 emu/g = 0.136 μ B/f.u. for SCMO25 and to M S ≈ 16.47 emu/g = 0.454 μ B/f.u. for SCMO60.

(a) Temperature dependence of the reference magnetization (open triangles) and of the magnetization with a stop and waiting protocol, (open squares) at a magnetic field H = 10 Oe. First, 25 nm SCMO sample was cooled from 300 K to 10 K with the rate of 3 K/min. Then the magnetization was measured during heating. After that, the system was cooled again from 300 K to a stop temperature T S. The system was annealed at a stop temperature T S = 40 K for the wait time 20 000 s. Next, the cooling was resumed and sample was cooled from T S to 10 K. At 10 K the magnetic field was turned on and the magnetization was measured at heating. (b) ΔM =  vs. temperature.
