Colossal electroresistance (CER) in manganites, i.e., a large change in electrical resistance as a function of varying applied electric field or applied electric current, has often been described as complimentary to the colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) effect.

Abstract

Colossal electroresistance (CER) in manganites, i.e., a large change in electrical resistance as a function of varying applied electric field or applied electric current, has often been described as complimentary to the colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) effect. Mixed valence vanadates with active and empty orbitals, unlike manganites, have not naturally been discussed in this context, as double exchange based CMR is not realizable in them. However, presence of coupled spin and orbital degrees of freedom, metal-insulator transition (MIT) accompanied by orbital order-disorder transition, still make the vanadates important. Here we probe a Fe-doped hollandite lead vanadate (PFVO), which exhibits a clear MIT as a function of temperature. Most importantly, a giant fall in the resistivity, indicative of a CER, as well as a systematic shift in the MIT towards higher temperatures are observed with increasing applied current. Detailed structural, magnetic, thermodynamic, and transport studies point towards a complex interplay between the structural distortion, orbital order/disorder effect, and the resultant MIT and magnetic ordering in this system.
