|Abstract:||A series of Colossal Magneto Resistance materials, with compositional formula (1 - x) La0.67Ca0.33MnO3 + xZrO(2) (where x=0%, 10%, 20%. 40%, 60%, 80%) were prepared by sol-gel technique. When characterized structurally by X-ray diffraction they are found to have Cubic Structure. After measuring, their bulk densities, the ultra shear longitudinal (V-1) and shear velocities (V-s) were measured at room temperature using the Pulse transmission technique. Using the ultrasonic data, the values of Young's and rigidity moduli along with Poisson's ratio and Debye temperatures have been calculated. As the materials are porous, zero porous elastic moduli have also been arrived at using a well-known model. The observed variation of clastic moduli with varying ZrO2 concentration has been explained qualitatively. (C) 2007|
