Beta Detected NMR of LaAlO3
Using 8Li β-NMR we studied the temperature dependence of the spin-lattice relaxation in LaAlO3 in high magnetic field. The relaxation in LAO is composed of two components: a fast-relaxing signal with
Direct Mapping of Phase Separation across the Metal-Insulator Transition of NdNiO3.
The local resistance of NdNiO3 thin films across their first-order MIT is directly image using conductive-atomic force microscopy, revealing the nucleation of ∼100-300 nm metallic domains in the insulating state that grow and percolate as temperature increases.
Volume-wise destruction of the antiferromagnetic Mott insulating state through quantum tuning
It is demonstrated through muon spin relaxation/rotation experiments that the QPT in RENiO3 and V2O3 is first order: the magnetically ordered volume fraction decreases to zero at theQPT, resulting in a broad region of intrinsic phase separation, while the ordered magnetic moment retains its full value until it is suddenly destroyed at the Q PT.

Rare-earth nickelates RNiO3: thin films and heterostructures.
This review stands in the larger framework of functional materials by focussing on heterostructures of rare-earth nickelates, described by the chemical formula RNiO3, to discuss the extensive studies on nickelate heterostructure as well as outline different approaches to tuning and controlling their physical properties.
Orbital control of noncollinear magnetic order in nickel oxide heterostructures.
R resonant x-ray diffraction data indicate a spiral state whose polarization plane can be controlled by adjusting the Ni d-orbital occupation via two independent mechanisms: epitaxial strain and spatial confinement of the valence electrons.
Experimental evidence for bipolaron condensation as a mechanism for the metal-insulator transition in rare-earth nickelates
Evidence is provided that the rare-earth nickelates RNiO3 is a polaronic liquid that freezes into the insulating state, suggesting that changes in carrier concentration drive the MIT through aPolaronic mechanism, where the (bi)polaron liquid freezes intoThe insulating phase across the MIT temperature.
Electronic structure of possible nickelate analogs to the cuprates
The electronic structure of various nickel oxides with nickel valence varying from 1+ to 3+ was investigated with the aim to find similarities and differences to the isoelectronic cuprates. Only if
Dimensionality Control of Electronic Phase Transitions in Nickel-Oxide Superlattices
The structure of metal-oxide superlattices is used to control the electronic order of the system. The competition between collective quantum phases in materials with strongly correlated electrons
Spin fluctuations in the exotic metallic state of Sr2RuO4 studied with β-NMR
A β-NMR study was performed on a Sr2RuO4 crystal in the metallic state using a beam of spin-polarized 8Li+ implanted at a mean depth of 90 nm. The 8Li+ spin-lattice relaxation rate is strongly
