Temperature dependences of resistivity and magnetoresistivity for half-metallic ferromagnets

Peculiarities of transport properties of three- and two-dimensional half-metallic ferromagnets are investigated, which are connected with the absence of spin-flip scattering processes. The temperature and magnetic field dependences of resistivity in various regimes are calculated. The resistivity is proportional to T9/2 for T < T* and to T7/2 for T > T*, T* being the crossover temperature for longitudinal scattering processes. The latter scale plays also an important role in magnetoresistance. The contribution of non-quasiparticle (incoherent) states to the transport properties is discussed. It is shown that they can dominate in the temperature dependence of the impurity-induced resistivity and in the tunnel junction conductivity.
