The magnetic and electric properties of polycrystalline (La0.7Tb0.3)2/3Ca1/3MnO3 were investigated. A spin glass-paramagnetic transition and metal-insulator transition were observed near 45K, and there exists continuous volume change in the range of measured temperature. At 60 K, a large aniso tropic magnetostriction and a volume magnetostriction correspond to an isotropic colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) with the magnitude of more than 40% at an applied field of ±0.1 T. Our results demonstrate that the transition is of second-order in nature and CMR could be caused by spin-charge coupling in this compound.
