Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A detailed investigation of the temperature and field dependence of reproducible steps in the magnetization and resistivity of Pr0.5Ca0.5Mn1-xCoxO3 (x=0.05) was carried out. It was found that the onset of the steps is extremely sharp in temperature and that the steps themselves are extraordinarily sharp with a width of ΔH/H∼10-4 even at temperatures immediately below the onset temperature.
