n this work, Eu substituted La0.7Sr0.3MnO 3 (LSMO) is studied to achieve high temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR). The compounds La0.7-xEuxSr 0.3MnO3 with x=0, 0.1 0.2 and 0.3 are prepared by solid state reaction route and their structural and transport properties are examined by different characterization techniques. The metal-semiconductor/insulator transition temperature (TMI) decreases from 390 K (for x=0) to 240 K (for x=0.3) with decrease in average ionic radius 〈rA〉 of A-site. The maximum TCR percentage of La0.7-xEuxSr 0.3MnO3 compound is found to be increased for x=0.2 (1.9%) and for x=0.3 (3.36%) compared to its parent compound La0.7Sr 0.3MnO3 (1.1%). The substitution of Eu increases the lattice distortion, which enhances the TCR value from 1.1% to 3.36%. The robustness of distortion increases with decreasing 〈rA〉 which is well correlated with the high magneto-resistance, and high TCR findings.
