Large magnetoresistances and non-Ohmic conductivity in EuWO[1+x]N[2-x]

The magnetic field and voltage dependent electronic transport properties of EuWO[1+x]N[2-x] ceramics are reported. Large negative magnetoresistances are observed at low temperatures, up to 70% in the least doped (x=0.09) material. Non-Ohmic conduction emerges below the 12 K Curie transition. This is attributed to a microstructure of ferromagnetic conducting and antiferromagnetic insulating regions resulting from small spatial fluctuations in the chemical doping.
