Résumé :

Oxygen de ?cient LaMnO 3 thin ?lms were successfully grown on glass substrate by spray pyrolysis at460  C. XRD studies show oxygen vacancies corresponding to the orthorhombic La4 Mn4O 11 with (0 40)preferential orientation. Optical properties were investigated through optical band gap and Urbachenergy. The dispersion of the refractive index wa s discussed in terms of both Cauchy and Wemple & Di-domenico models. Raman spectroscopy shows the band positions corresponding to LaMnO3 with a shif trelated to oxygen de?ciency. Electrical properties were quanti ?ed using impedance spectroscopytechnique within frequency range of 5 Hz –13 MHz at various temperatures. Both the DC conductivity andrelaxation frequency were thermally activated with activation energy around 0.9 eV. Also, ACconductivity wa s investigated through Jonscher law. Finally, magnetic measurements at roomtemperature using vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) technique show ferromagnetic behavior ofthese ternary sprayed thin ?lms.
