Abstract

MnK-edge X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) measurements have been made to study the temperature-dependent lattice effects in the La0.75Ca0.25MnO3 system. The high-resolution XANES spectra recorded with high signal-to-noise ratio have allowed us to study the temperature dependence of the Jahn-Teller splitting indicated directly by the dipole forbidden pre-peaks corresponding to transition in Mn 3d states. The results show splitting of theeg state in its two orbitals (dx2 -y2 andd3z2-r2. The energy splitting shows anomalous temperature dependence across the giant magnetoresistance transition temperature.
