La0.67Ca0.33MnO3 (LCMO) attracts considerable attention as a quintessential example for colossal magnetoresistance (CMR), metal-insulator transition and related temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) studies. Here, co-precipitation method was utilized to prepare the LCMO ceramics, whose magnetotransport properties as a function of calcination temperature (Tcal) and calcination time (tcal) were investigated. The magnetotransport properties of these LCMO ceramics were significantly enhanced compared with LCMO derived by sol-gel methods. The TCR of LCMO increased firstly and then decreased as the Tcal increased, whereas the metal-insulator transition temperature (TMIT) shifted towards to the lower temperature. Magnetoresistance (MR) increased as Tcal rose and reached 82.4 % at Tcal = 800 ℃. The mechanism of such magnetotransport properties with different temperature ranges was discussed. The optimal TCR of 32.3%·K-1 in LCMO was prepared with Tcal = 500 ℃ and tcal = 8 h, showing that co-precipitation method would facilitate the potential application of LCMO in infrared detecting and magnetoresistive switching.
