Interfacially controlled transient photoinduced superconductivity.


We report on a large transient photoinduced enhancement of the superconducting critical temperature (DeltaTc = 23 K) in epitaxial YBa2Cu3O(6.7)/La(0.7)Ca(0.3)MnO3 bilayers upon visible light illumination. The effect relaxes with a characteristic time of 100 s at low temperatures, which is 4 orders of magnitude faster than the persistent photoconductivity or… (More)
