ABSTRACT The effect of $^{16}$O $\to$ $^{18}$O isotope substitution on electrical resistivity and magnetic susceptibility of Sm$_{1-x}$Sr$_x$MnO$_3$ manganites is analyzed. It is shown that the oxygen isotope substitution drastically affects the phase diagram at the crossover region between the ferromagnetic metal state and that of antiferromagnetic insulator (0.4 $< x <$ 0.6), and induces the metal-insulator transition at for $x$ = 0.475 and 0.5. The nature of antiferromagnetic insulator phase is discussed. Comment: 4 pages, 3 eps figures, RevTeX, submitted to Phys. Rev. Lett

ABSTRACT: We report on the pressure dependence of the order of ferromagnetic (FM) to paramagnetic (PM) phase transition in (Sm0.7Nd0.3)0.52Sr0.48MnO3 single crystal. At ambient condition, the system exhibits clear evidences of first-order FM-PM phase transition at (Tc approx 146 K). The application of pressure (P = 12.1 kbar) makes the FM transition second-order in nature with Tcapprox 176K.

[Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Our study on Sm1/2Ca1/2−xSrxMnO3 (x = 0, 1/6, 1/3, and 1/2) system shows an unusual consequence in magnetic field-induced transition to ferromagnetic metallic state and collapse of charge ordering in the intermediate compositions. Interestingly, the transition is sharp or step-like at low temperature that is observed at much lower field ( ∼ 75 kOe) for intermediate compositions than the end compositions (not visible up to 100 kOe). The atomic-scale local inhomogeneity/distortion arising from ionic mismatch due to doping is supposed to be critical behind this field-induced transition. The charge ordering temperature observed from magnetization and magnetoresistance studies decreases with increasing x which is consistent with the results for R1/2A1/2MnO3 (R = La − Sm, A = Ca, Sr) family.
