Limits to the strain engineering of layered square-planar nickelate thin films

The layered square-planar nickelates, Ndn+1NinO2n+2, are an appealing system to tune the electronic properties of square-planar nickelates via dimensionality; indeed, superconductivity was recently

Oxygen vacancy formation and electronic reconstruction in strained LaNiO$_3$ and LaNiO$_3$/LaAlO$_3$ superlattices

By using density functional theory calculations including a Coulomb repulsion term, we explore the formation of oxygen vacancies and their impact on the electronic and magnetic structure in strained

Fundamental difference in the electronic reconstruction of infinite-layer versus perovskite neodymium nickelate films on SrTiO3 (001)

The discovery of superconductivity in a noncuprate NdNiO${}_{2}$ film on SrTiO${}_{3}$(001) has raised significant interest, though its origin is so far elusive. Since the bulk compound shows no

A superconducting praseodymium nickelate with infinite layer structure.

These findings indicate that superconductivity in the infinite layer nickelates is relatively insensitive to the details of the rare earth 4f configuration, and motivate the exploration of a broader family of compounds based on two-dimensional NiO2 planes, which will enable systematic investigation of the superconducting and normal state properties and their underlying mechanisms.

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

Atomic-resolution spectroscopic imaging of oxide interfaces

Perovskite oxides show a rich variety of electronic phases in bulk. The prospect of combining these phases at the atomic scale has fueled the interest in oxide heterostructures. The existence of

Polarity-induced electronic and atomic reconstruction at NdNiO2/SrTiO3 interfaces

Superconductivity has recently been observed in Sr-doped NdNiO2 films grown on SrTiO3. Whether it is caused by or related to the interface remains an open question. To address this issue, we use

Stability and electronic properties of LaNiO2/SrTiO3 heterostructures

Infinite-layer nickelate thin films materialize an intriguing new platform for high-temperature unconventional superconductivity, with LaNiO2/SrTiO3 as reference setup. We discuss the relative

Artificial charge-modulationin atomic-scale perovskite titanate superlattices

It is found that a minimum thickness of five LaTiO3 layers is required for the centre titanium site to recover bulk-like electronic properties, and this represents a framework within which the short-length-scale electronic response can be probed and incorporated in thin-film oxide heterostructures.
