The subtle balance of electronic correlations, crystal field splitting, and spin–orbit coupling in layered Ir4+ oxides can give rise to novel electronic and magnetic phases. Experimental progress in this field relies on the synthesis of epitaxial films of these oxides. However, the growth of layered iridates with excellent structural quality is a great experimental challenge. Here we selectively grow high quality single-phase films of Sr2IrO4, Sr3Ir2O7, and SrIrO3 on various substrates from a…
