Thin films of colossal magnetoresistance (MR) material La0.7Ca0.3MnO3 were implanted with 200 keV Cr ions over a range of fluence from 1×1013 to 5×1015ions/cm2. Resistance measurements were made in zero and applied magnetic fields of up to 8 T. At fluences of 1×1014 and 5×1014Cr+/cm2, the resistance was much greater than in the unimplanted material and the metal–insulator transition temperature was suppressed to values below 20 K. For the highest fluence (5×1015ions/cm2), a reentrant metal–insulator-type transition was observed and the resistance dropped significantly. Furthermore, improvement in the low-field MR was observed between the virgin and high fluence implanted films for fields less than 500 mT. These results are interpreted in terms of changes in magnetic properties with depth, defect creation, and the influence of oxygen deficiency. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
