      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.

      Highly oriented thin films of Fe3O4 were deposited on (100) LaAlO3 substrates by pulsed laser ablation. The structural quality of the films was confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The films showed a Verwey transition near 120 K. The films were subjected to 80 keV Ar+ implantation at different ion doses up to a maximum of 6 × 1014 ions/cm2. Ion beam induced modifications in the films were investigated using XRD and resistance vs temperature measurements. Implantation decreases the change in resistance at 120 K and this effect saturates beyond 3 × 1014 ions/cm2. The Verwey transition temperature, 𝑇𝑣, shifts towards lower temperatures with increase in ion dose.
