Metallic ferromagnetism-insulating charge order transition in doped manganites

Van-Nham Phan, Quoc-Huy Ninh, and Minh-Tien Tran

We show that an interplay of double exchange and impurity randomness can explain the competition between metal-ferromagnetic and insulating charge ordered states in dopedmanganites. The double exchange is simplified in the Ising type, whereas the randomness is modeled by the Falicov-Kimball binary distribution. The combined model is considered in a framework of dynamical mean-field theory. Using the Kubo-Greenwood formalism, the transport coefficients are explicitly expressed in terms of single-particle spectral functions. Dividing the system into two sublattices we have pointed out a direct calculation to the checkerboard charge order parameter and the magnetizations. Numerical results show us that the checkerboard charge order can settle inside the ferromagnetic state at low temperature. An insulator-metal transition is also found at the point of the checkerboard charge order-ferromagnetic transition.
