Abstract: We report the effect of magnetic field (H) and hydrostatic pressure (P) on the order of magnetic transition of polycrystalline La0.4Bi 0.3Sr0.3MnO3 which undergoes a first-order paramagnetic (PM) to ferromagnetic (FM) transition in La0.7-xBi xSr0.3MnO3 series. The ferromagnetic Curie temperature (TC) increases with increasing H (12.01 K/T-cooling and 10.28 K/T-warming) and P (8.1 K/kbar-cooling and 6 K/kbar-warming). The first-order FM transition becomes second-order under the applied magnetic field of 9 T and pressure of 9.1 kbar. We have analyzed the critical behavior associated with the second order PM-FM transition at 9.1 kbar. The estimated critical exponents (β = 0.5217, γ = 1.209, and δ = 3.162) are found to be close to the mean-field model. Pressure suppresses metamagnetic transition in magnetization isotherms observed above TC in ambient pressure and enhances the magnetic entropy change (ΔSm). The ΔSm was found to increase by 50% under hydrostatic pressure of 9.1 kbar at TC = 240 K. This study suggested that hydrostatic pressure can be used to enhance magnetocaloric values in phase separated manganites. © 2013 American Institute of Physics.
