The high-field spin structure of magnetic perovskites and related magnetoresistive materials is investigated by model calculations. Competing exchange as well as real-structure-dependent random field, random anisotropy, and Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interactions yield a noncollinear magnetic structure that may be called a spin colloid. The noncollinear structure, which contributes to the zero- and finite-temperature spin mixing and reduces the magnetoresistance, is strongly field dependent. © 2005 American Institute of Physics.
