Magnetothermopower, magnetoresistance and magnetothermal conductivity in La0.95Sr0.05Co1-xMnxO3 (0.00 ≤ x ≤ 1.00) 
Mat. Res. Exp.  
Magnetothermopower, magnetoresistance and magnetothermal conductivity 
The dependence of magnetic and thermal transport properties on charge states of Mn and Co in LaMnO3 and LaCoO3, respectively, has motivated to perform a systematic study in the La0.95Sr0.05Co1−xMnxO3 (0.00 „ x „ 1.00). Substitution of Mn at Co-site leads to a decrease in both the thermopower(α) and the electrical conductivity (σ) values. However, there is a concomitant increase in the magnetothermopower(MTP) values with an increase in Mn substitution close to paramagnetic to ferromagnetic transition temperature (TC). We observe a tunability in the sign of magnetoresistance with an increase in Mn substitution. Thermal conductivity (κ) exhibits a weak magnetic field dependence with magnetothermal conductivity (MTC) peaking close to TC for 0.50 „ x „ 1.00. A maximum MTP is observed close to TC in x = 0.95 sample. The dependence of α on magnetic field is found to increase with the enhancement of TC in the system. We conclude that Mn substitution at Co-site not only improves the TC in the system but also increases the effect of magnetic field on thermal transport properties

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
