Infrared spectroscopy is used to investigate the electronic structure and charge carrier relaxation in crystalline films of CrO2 which is the simplest of all half-metallic ferromagnets. Chromium dioxide is a bad metal at room temperature but it has a remarkably low residual resistivity (<5 μΩcm) despite the small spectral weight associated with free carrier absorption. The infrared measurements show that low residual resistivity is due to the collapse of the scattering rate at ω<2000 cm-1. The blocking of the relaxation channels at low ω and T can be attributed to the unique electronic structure of a half-metallic ferromagnet. In contrast to other ferromagnetic oxides, the intraband spectral weight is constant below the Curie temperature.
