The electronic density of states (DOS) of La(0.625)Ca(0.375)MnO(3) (LCMO) strain-free epitaxial thin films with an insulator-metal transition temperature (T(IM)) of 250 K was probed using variable-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. We find a depression in the DOS with a finite zero bias conductance (ZBC) signifying a pseudogap in(More)
