In this paper, the authors report the electrical properties of polycrystalline La0.8Ca0.17Ag0.03MnO3 manganites synthesized using sol-gel method. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns of polycrystalline La0.8Ca0.17Ag0.03MnO3 samples reveal an orthorhombic perovskite structure with Pnma space group. Analysis using energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) confirms that the sample contains all expected chemical elements without any additional impurity. The measurement of resistivity versus temperature using cryogenic magnetometer was performed to investigate the electrical properties. The results show that the electrical resistivity of polycrystalline La0.8Ca0.17Ag0.03MnO3 exhibits metalic behavior below 244 K. The temperature dependence of electrical resistivity dominantly emanates from electron-electron scattering and the grain/domain boundary play a important role in conduction mechanism in polycrystalline La0.8Ca0.17Ag0.03MnO3.
