Resistive and low-temperature magnetoresistive properties of pressed powders of ferromagnetic halfmetal chromium dioxide (CrO2) with shape anisotropy of nanoparticles are studied. And we also studied the influence of Fe impurity on the value of tunneling resistance and magnetoresistance in CrO2 powders. It is found that the Fe impurity reduces resistance and tunneling magnetoresistance in chromium dioxide. We suggest that such a decrease of magnetoresistance in solid solution Cr1-xFexO2 is due to the formation of additional localized states at the iron impurities in a tunnel barrier. We found the influence of the speed of the magnetic field changing on the form of lowtemperature tunneling magnetoresistance hysteretic loops in Cr1-xFexO powder. It is shown that the form of low-temperature magnetoresistance hysteresis depends on the relaxation rate of the magnetic moments of nanoparticles to an equilibrium state. The possible reasons for such dependence are discussed.
