Negative anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) is observed in Fe4N film from 4.2 to 300 K. The AMR ratio rises with temperature in a stepwise fashion near 50 K, and is accompanied by a change in the magnetization hysteresis. The Campbell and Fert model is extended to investigate the influence of spin-polarization of conduction electrons on the AMR, and it is found that the negative AMR is not observed for majority spin conduction in ferromagnets. Consequently, it is concluded that the negative AMR that observed in the present study is possibly clear evidence of minority spin conduction in Fe4N film, as is predicted theoretically.
