The phenomenon of colossal magnetoresistance in manganites is generally agreed to be a result of competition between crystal phases with different electronic, magnetic, and structural order; a competition which can be strong enough to cause phase separation between metallic ferromagnet and insulating charge modulated states. Nevertheless, closer inspection of phase diagrams in many manganites reveals complex phases where the two order parameters of magnetism and charge modulation unexpectedly… Expand
Long range electronic phase separation in CaFe3O5
It is shown that paramagnetic CaFe3O5 undergoes separation into two phases with different electronic and spin orders below their joint magnetic transition at 302 K, which is important for the generation and control of electronic phase separated nanostructures. Expand
Polaronic Emergent Phases in Manganite-based Heterostructures
Transition metal functional oxides, e.g., perovskite manganites, with strong electron, spin and lattice correlations, are well-known for different phase transitions and field-induced colossal effectsExpand
Metamagnetic texture in a polar antiferromagnet
The notion of a simple ordered state implies homogeneity. If the order is established by a broken symmetry, the elementary Landau theory of phase transitions shows that only one symmetry modeExpand
Charge density waves beyond the Pauli paramagnetic limit in 2D systems
Two-dimensional materials are ideal candidates to host Charge density waves (CDWs) that exhibit paramagnetic limiting behavior, similarly to the well known case of superconductors. Here we study howExpand
Coexistence of structural and magnetic phases in van der Waals magnet CrI3
The findings suggest that the challenge of understanding the magnetic properties of thin layers CrI3 is in general a coexisting structural-phase problem mediated by the volume-wise competition between magnetic phases already present in bulk. Expand
Multi-messenger nanoprobes of hidden magnetism in a strained manganite
A Ginzburg–Landau description is proposed to rationalize the co-active interplay of strain, lattice distortions and magnetism nano-resolved here in strained LCMO, thus guiding future functional engineering of epitaxial oxides into the regime of phase-programmable materials. Expand

It is noteworthy that the mixed-valent rare-earth cobaltates of the type Ln(1−x)AxCoO3 also exhibit electronic inhomogeneities just as the manganites. Expand
Unexpected Intermediate State Photoinduced in the Metal-Insulator Transition of Submicrometer Phase-Separated Manganites.
Using magnetic force microscopy and time-dependent magneto-optical Kerr effect, it is determined that the third state is a nanoscale mixture of the competing ferromagnetic metallic and charge-ordered insulating phases, with its own physical properties. Expand
Atomic Scale Tracking of a Charge Order Transition with Continuously Variable Temperature Cryo-STEM
Strongly correlated materials feature rich phase diagrams with competing order parameters and anomalous emergent properties. In many systems, however, phenomena such as charge and magnetic order canExpand

Abstract Structural and magnetic phase-transitions in La1-xSrxMnO3+δ (x = 0.67 & 0.71) have been studied employing x-ray diffraction, neutron diffraction and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) inExpand
