Atomically sharp oxide heterostructures often exhibit unusual physical properties that are absent in the constituent bulk materials. The interplay between electrostatic boundary conditions, strain and dimensionality in ultrathin epitaxial films can result in monolayer-scale transitions in electronic or magnetic properties. Here we report an atomically sharp antiferromagnetic-to-ferromagnetic phase transition when atomically growing polar antiferromagnetic LaMnO3 (001) films on SrTiO3 substrates…

Emergent nanoscale superparamagnetism at oxide interfaces

An emergent phenomenon at the LaMnO3/SrTiO3 interface where an antiferromagnetic Mott insulator abruptly transforms into a nanoscale inhomogeneous magnetic state is reported and a model that captures the sharp onset and the thickness dependence of the magnetization is derived.

My title

Neutral atoms can strongly influence the intrinsic rotation and radial electric field at the tokamak edge. Here, we present a framework to investigate these effects when the neutrals dominate the



Critical thickness for ferromagnetism in LaAlO₃/SrTiO₃ heterostructures.

Using scanning superconducting quantum interference device microscopy, it is found that magnetism appears only above a critical LaAlO(3) thickness, similar to the conductivity, which strongly suggests that disorder or local strain generates magnetism in a population of the interface carriers.

Quantum many-body interactions in digital oxide superlattices.

It is demonstrated that quantum many-body interactions are enhanced, driving the electronic states from a ferromagnetic polaronic metal to a pseudogapped insulating ground state.

Exchange bias in LaNiO3-LaMnO3 superlattices.

It is demonstrated how interfacial interactions can induce a complex magnetic structure in a non-magnetic material and specifically show that exchange bias can unexpectedly emerge in heterostructures consisting of paramagnetic LaNiO3 (LNO) and ferromagnetic LaMnO 3 (LMO).

Critical thickness for ferroelectricity in perovskite ultrathin films

It is shown that, contrary to current thought, BaTiO3 thin films between two metallic SrRuO3 electrodes in short circuit lose their ferro electric properties below a critical thickness of about six unit cells, suggesting the existence of a lower limit for the thickness of useful ferroelectric layers in electronic devices.

Critical thickness and orbital ordering in ultrathin La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 films

Detailed analysis of transport, magnetism, and x-ray absorption spectroscopy measurements on ultrathin La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 films with thicknesses from 3 to 70 unit cells resulted in the identification of

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

Why some interfaces cannot be sharp

A central goal of modern materials physics and nanoscience is the control of materials and their interfaces to atomic dimensions. For interfaces between polar and nonpolar layers, this goal is

Growth and giant magnetoresistance properties of La‐deficient LaxMnO3−δ (0.67≤x≤1) films

Epitaxial thin films of lanthanum‐deficient LaxMnO3−δ (0.67≤x≤1) have been grown on (100) SrTiO3 substrates by pulsed laser deposition. The as‐deposited films exhibit a ferromagnetic transition at

Critical thickness for itinerant ferromagnetism in ultrathin films of SrRuO3

Ultrathin films of the itinerant ferromagnet ${\text{SrRuO}}_{3}$ were studied using the transport and magneto-optic polar Kerr effect. We find that below 4 monolayers, the films become insulating
