Using first principle calculations we showed that the Curie temperature of manganites thin films can be increased by far more than an order of magnitude by applying appropriate strains. Our main breakthrough is that the control of the orbital ordering responsible for the spectacular T{C} increase cannot be imposed by the substrate only. Indeed, the strains, first applied by the substrate, need to be maintained over the growth direction by the alternation of the manganite layers with another…

Increased Curie Temperature Induced by Orbital Ordering in La0.67Sr0.33MnO3/BaTiO3 Superlattices

The results reveal that controlling orbital ordering can effectively improve the Curie temperature of La0.67Sr0.33MnO3/BaTiO3 superlattices and that in-plane orbital occupancy is beneficial to the double exchange ferromagnetic coupling of thin-film samples.

Enhancement of the Jahn-Teller distortion by magnetization in manganites

Using measurements of resonant x-ray scattering from a LaMnO3/SrMnO3 superlattice grown on SrTiO3(001), we present experimental evidence for the enhancement of the Jahn-Teller distortion by magnetic

LSMO Films with Increased Temperature of MI Transition

Epitaxial La0.67Sr0.33MnO3 thin lms with a signi cant increased temperature of metal-insulator transition (∼450 K) are prepared on single crystal MgO (001) substrates using di erent deposition

Electron‐lattice correlations and phase transitions in CMR manganites

Interrelations between global and local structure and magnetism and transport in three‐dimensional perovskite manganites is reviewed and compared with recent studies on thin films and superlattices.

Giant in-plane anisotropy in manganite thin films driven by strain-engineered double exchange interaction and electronic phase separation

We investigate epitaxial Pr0.65(Ca0.7Sr0.3)0.35MnO3 thin film grown on orthorhombic (110) NdGaO3 substrate which breaks the lattice symmetry and affects the phase separated ground state. As a result

Control of the charge/orbital ordering transition in epitaxial La7/8Sr1/8MnO3 thin films through compressive strain

The effect of compressive strain on charge/orbital ordering (COO) transition in epitaxial La7/8Sr1/8MnO3 (LSMO) thin films was investigated. The compressive strain of LSMO thin films grown on LaAlO3

Robust Ferromagnetism in Highly Strained SrCoO3 Thin Films

Epitaxial strain provides important pathways to control the magnetic and electronic states in transition metal oxides. However, the large strain is usually accompanied by a strong reduction of the
