Oriented La0.75Ca0.25MnO3 (LCMO) films have been deposited by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) method on (100) LaAlO3 substrates. Ion-beam technique is used to introduce a very low concentration of57Fe in LCMO film. The deposited films were subjected to 100 keV57Fe+ implantation with different fluences at room temperature. The main motivation of this work was to study the influence of implantation on the transport mechanism in materials exhibiting colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) property. It is observed that Fe implantation drastically affects the structural and magneto-transport properties. The samples were characterized using the X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique, conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy (CEMS) and resistance temperature (R-T) measurements.
