We report a detailed study on the electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding effectiveness (SE) properties in La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 (LSMO) nanomaterials. The samples were prepared by a solution chemistry (sol-gel) route at different sintering temperatures. The single-phase samples with grain sizes of 22 and 34 nm showed DC electrical conductivity variation from 0.65 to 13 S cm(-1) at room temperature. The application of a high magnetic field resulted in higher conductivity values. The electrical conductivity variation with temperature could be fitted with a variable range hopping mechanism in a limited temperature range. The variation of frequency dependent electromagnetic parameters measured at room temperature within the X-band region is consistent with the electrical conductivity behavior. The complex permittivity and permeability parameters were determined in line with the Nicolson-Ross-Weir algorithm. The LSMO nanomaterial samples showed EMI shielding effectiveness values of up to 19 dB (96.3% attenuation) over the X-band frequency range, making them suitable for microwave radiation shielding in commercial and defense appliances.
