Measurement and Analysis of Temperature Dependent Resistance of La0.67Ca/Sr0.33MnO3 CMR Samples Using LabVIEW
Abstract: In this paper we report design of one virtual instrument for the measurement of resistance as a function of temperature. The program has been developed using the National Instruments’ graphical programming language ‘LabVIEW’ and has been run for the measurement of magnetoresistance of some colossal magnetoresistive (CMR) compounds, .
