Neutron scattering was used to study the ferromagnetic manganites Nd0.7Sr0.3MnO3 (TC = 197.9K) and Pr0.63Sr0.37MnO3 (TC = 300.9K). The spin dynamical behavior of these two systems is similar at low temperatures but drastically different at temperatures around TC. While the formation of spin clusters of size (∼20Å) dominates the spin dynamics of the 197.9 K sample close to TC, the paramagnetic to ferromagnetic transition for the 300.9 K sample is more conventional. These results, combined with seemingly inconsistent earlier reports, reveal clear systematics in the spin dynamics of the manganites.
