Monte Carlo simulation of magneto-transport property in anisotropic layered structures



An anisotropic layered model structure composed of line-groups as an anisotropic bilayered manganite, is constructed based on elementary interactions in bilayered manganites. The anisotropic magneto-transport property is investigated using microscopic resistor-network scheme. The simulation reproduces qualitatively the main magneto-transport behaviors of bilayered manganites. It is shown that both the magnetic structure and the values of resistors in the resistor-network influence the electronic transport of the whole system. The resistors within the line-groups and between the line-groups play different roles in modulating the transport behaviors.
