Using cross-sectional scanning tunneling microscopy on in situ fractured SrTiO(3), one of the most commonly used substrates for the growth of complex oxide thin films and superlattices, atomically smooth terraces have been observed on (001) surfaces. Furthermore, it was discovered that fracturing this material at room temperature results in the formation of stripe patterned domains having characteristic widths ( approximately 10 to approximately 20 nm) of alternating surface terminations that… CONTINUE READING
