Abstract: The excess low-frequency (1/f) electrical noise of three representative half-metallic oxides, CrO2, Fe3O4, and La2/3Sr1/3MnO3, has been studied as a function of the temperature (5–300 K) and a magnetic field (up to 12 T). In CrO2 and La2/3Sr1/3MnO3, the resistance fluctuations are investigated in the metallic regime, below Tc. The magnetite noise is measured across the Verwey transition, in the hopping regime. We find, in all these oxides, a high normalized noise level which roughly follows the temperature dependence of the resistivity. For CrO2 and La2/3Sr1/3MnO3, the form of the density of state of the responsible excitations is inferred. Oxygen displacement around grain boundaries, magnetic fluctuations, and reversed-spin electronic excitations in the band structure are discussed as possible explanations of the low-frequency fluctuations. For Fe3O4, the 1/f noise and its temperature dependence are attributed to fluctuations of the number of carriers in a critical network.
