We study the magnetic properties of La1-xSrxMnO3 samples for concentrations x, 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.5. An analysis is done to accurately determine the transition temperature or critical temperature. Magnetic phase diagrams showing the various concentrations at different temperatures will be determined for our thin films. Using the phase diagrams for both bulk and thin film materials can show how reducing the dimensionality from the third dimension to approaching the second-dimension affects the phase diagram.
