Hetero double-layers of LaBaMnO3 (LBMO)/ZnO were fabricated by ion beam sputtering on substrates of MgO, sapphire (SP), LaAlO3 (LAO), and SrTiO3 (STO). All the surfaces of substrates, ZnO and LBMO have step-terrace morphology. The p-LBMO/n-ZnO/SP shows junction rectification at different temperatures. The junction resistance follows from colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) of LBMO based on DEC model. The different LBMO/ZnO junctions on the different substrates show different junction behaviors at room temperatures. LBMO/ZnO/STO has the largest rectification factor of 210. After running measurement currents, LBMO/ZnO/STO shows current-voltage (I-V) switchings. LBMO/ZnO/MgO shows very clear switching and large hysteresis between upward and downward voltage sweeps. These are interpreted by CMR and DEC model, and phase separation. The switching is caused by disconnection of percolation path consisting of ferromagnetic metallic grains. The higher resistant state cannot be quickly transformed back to the lower resistant state during the downward sweep. (C) 2014 The Japan Society of Applied Physics
