Abstract: We have used tunnelling spectroscopy (TS) to probe the density of states (DOS) of the rare earth manganate Nd0:5Sr0:5MnO3, which shows a transition to a charge ordered (CO) antiferromagnetic insulating state from a ferromagnetic metallic state. We find that a gap opens up in the DOS around the Fermi level, EF , as the solid is cooled below the charge ordering temperature TCO. The charge ordering gap (1CO) was found to be strongly temperature dependent for T∼TCO and for T/TCO < 0:6 it reaches a limiting value of nearly 0.27 eV. Above TCO the temperature dependence of the DOS at EF was found to be similar to that of the solids such as La0:8Ca0:2MnO3 which show colossal magnetoresistance but no charge ordering.
