Strontium-doped lanthanum manganite (La0.9Sr0.1MnO3-δ-LSM) have synthesized by using spray pyrolysis techniques. The deposition of thin films via spray pyrolysis involves spraying metallic salt solution on a heated substrate. The solution droplets reach the substrate surface, where solvent evaporation and the decomposition of the salt occurs, forming a film. The film morphology and thickness depends on the volume of solution sprayed and substrate temperature.


Strontium-doped lanthanum manganite ( La0.9Sr0.1MnO3-δ-LSM ) were synthesized by spray pyrolytic technique in thin film form on glass  (quartz)  substrate optimizing the spray parameters to obtain pin-hole free, crack free and porous thin film sintered at 650oC and thin films were characterized by thermo gravimetric analysis, X-ray diffractometry (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy. Film thickness measurement was carried out by using surface profilometer.
