Epitaxial Cr-doped Ti2O3 films show giant negative magnetoresistance up to -365% at 2 K. The resistivity of the doped samples follows the behavior expected of spin (magnetic) polarons at low temperature. Namely, rho=rho(0) exp(T-0/T)(p), where p=0.5 in zero field. A large applied field quenches the spin polarons and p is reduced to 0.25 expected for lattice polarons. The formation of spin polarons is an indication of strong exchange coupling between the magnetic ions and holes in the system. (c) 2005 American Institute of Physics.
