Abstract

Bulk and nano La0.62Sr0.38MnO3 perovskite manganite samples were prepared using solid state and sonochemical reaction respectively. The ultrasonic velocities measurement was made on prepared samples using ultrasonic through transmission method, at a fundamental frequency of 5 MHz over wide range of temperatures. The temperature dependence of the ultrasonic parameters shows an interesting anomaly in bulk and nano perovskite samples. The observed dramatic softening and hardening in sound velocities are related to phase transitions. Further, a decrease in grain size in the nanostructured sample leads to a shift in the ferromagnetic transition temperature (TC) from 375 to 370 K.
