Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source uncovers colossal conductivity changes in a special material If there were a Hall of Fame for materials, manganites would be among its members. Some manganites, compounds of manganese oxides, are renowned for colossal magnetoresistance "“ the ability to suddenly boost resistance to electrical conductivity by orders of magnitude when a magnetic field is applied "“ and manganites are also promising candidates for spintronics applications "“...

Chemical compounds called manganites have been studied for many years since the discovery of colossal magnetoresistance, a property that promises important applications in the fields of magnetic sensors, magnetic random access memories and spintronic devices. However, understanding"”and ultimately controlling"”this effect remains a challenge, because much about manganite physics is still not known. A research team lead by Maria Baldini from Stanford University and Carnegie...
