Abstract

The magnetic and dielectric properties of perovskite manganites R0.5Ca0.5MnO3 (R = Eu-Lu), which show charge ordering of the Mn-3d electrons below room temperature, have been investigated. Their dielectric constants were ∼1000-10000 at around room temperature. Inflections or peaks of temperature dependences of the dielectric constants were observed at around the charge-ordering temperatures. Analyses of tan δ for R = Eu-Lu and EXAFS spectra for R = Dy suggested that the dielectric properties of the present system are rooted in a special arrangement and transfer of the Mn-3d electrons. The two-peak structure of tan δ indicates that dielectric measurement can be used to observe homogeneity or inhomogeneity of sample, as mentioned in our previous paper on the ruthenium perovskite oxides.
