Why Manganites Are Interesting

  • J. R. Schrieffer
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 136)


This book is devoted to the experimental and theoretical description of a family of materials known as manganites. The book also includes information about related compounds with similar physical properties. Manganites are currently attracting much interest, due to their unusual behavior upon the application of relatively small magnetic fields. The possibility of technological applications is often mentioned in this context, but the main driving force for the effort on manganites is triggered by mere scientific curiosity. These materials are without doubt a challenge to our present understanding of electrons in crystals, as remarked by J. R. Schrieffer in the historical perspective at the end of this chapter.
