Abstract: We have investigated in detail the electronic transport properties of half metallic CrO2 powder-based devices, fabricated using optical lithography and field alignment technique. A transition in the conduction mechanism from spin-dependent intergranular tunneling to inelastic hopping was observed at 215 K. This transition temperature shifts to 230 K in the presence of 10 kOe field cooling due to reduction of the spin-independent hopping conductance channel. I-V characteristics exhibit strong temperature dependence and are non-linear even at room temperature. Our experimental results are in good agreement with a simple theoretical model. A novel 'double switching' phenomenon was observed in the I-V curves below the transition temperature. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
