Possible ferromagnetism induced in otherwise nonmagnetic materials has been motivating intense research in complex oxide heterostructures. Here we show that a confined magnetism is realized at the interface between SrTiO3 and two insulating polar oxides, BiMnO3 and LaAlO3. By using polarization dependent x-ray absorption spectroscopy, we find that in both(More)
Two-terminal multistate memory elements based on VO(2)/TiO(2) thin film microcantilevers are reported. Volatile and non-volatile multiple resistance states are programmed by current pulses at temperatures within the hysteretic region of the metal-insulator transition of VO(2). The memory mechanism is based on current-induced creation of metallic clusters by(More)
Understanding the nature of charge carriers at the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface is one of the major open issues in the full comprehension of the charge confinement phenomenon in oxide heterostructures. Here, we investigate thermopower to study the electronic structure in LaAlO3/SrTiO3 at low temperature as a function of gate field. In particular, under large(More)
A programmable micromechanical resonator based on a VO2 thin film is reported. Multiple mechanical eigenfrequency states are programmed using Joule heating as local power source, gradually driving the phase transition of VO2 around its Metal-Insulator transition temperature. Phase coexistence of domains is used to tune the stiffness of the device via local(More)
Advances in growth technology of oxide materials allow single atomic layer control of heterostructures. In particular delta doping, a key materials' engineering tool in today's semiconductor technology, is now also available for oxides. Here we show that a fully electric-field-tunable spin-polarized and superconducting quasi-2D electron system (q2DES) can(More)
Superconducting epitaxial FeSe 0.5 Te 0.5 thin films were prepared on SrTiO 3 (001) substrates by pulsed laser deposition. The high purity of the phase, the quality of the growth and the epitaxy were studied with different experimental techniques: X-rays diffraction, reflection high energy electron diffraction, scanning tunnelling microscopy and atomic(More)
We report the observation of spatially separated Kondo scattering and ferromagnetism in anatase Ta0.06Ti0.94O2 thin films as a function of thickness (10-200 nm). The Kondo behavior observed in thicker films is suppressed on decreasing thickness and vanishes below ~25 nm. In 200 nm film, transport data could be fitted to a renormalization group theory for(More)
Superconducting thin films of MgB 2 were deposited by Pulsed Laser Deposition on magnesium oxide and sapphire substrates. Samples grown at 450ºC in an argon buffer pressure of about 10-2 mbar by using a magnesium enriched target resulted to be superconducting with a transition temperature of about 25 K. Film deposited from a MgB 2 sintered pellet target in(More)
The goal of this work is to study the evolution of thermoelectric transport across the members of the Ruddlesden-Popper series iridates [Formula: see text], where a metal-insulator transition driven by bandwidth change occurs, from the strongly insulating Sr2IrO4 to the metallic non Fermi liquid behavior of SrIrO3. Sr2IrO4 ([Formula: see text]), Sr3Ir2O7(More)
In this paper we show diverse methods for patterning transition metal oxide (TMO) thin films by Local Anodic Oxidation (LAO) using an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). At first, direct lithography by current-controlled LAO of TMO thin films and selective wet etching is presented. For insulating films or those whose AFM patterns cannot be selectively removed by(More)
