Evidence of a minority monoclinic LaNiO2.5 phase in lanthanum nickelate thin films

L. López-Conesa,* J. M. RebledD. PesqueraN. DixF. SánchezG. HerranzJ. FontcubertaC. MagénM. J. CasanoveS. Estradé and  F. Peiró. Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2017,19, 9137-9142. DOI:10.1039/C7CP00902J

LaNiO3 (LNO) thin films of 14 nm and 35 nm thicknesses grown epitaxially on LaAlO3 (LAO) and (LaAlO3)0.3(Sr2TaAlO6)0.7 (LSAT) substrates are studied using High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM) and High Angle Annular Dark Field (HAADF) imaging. The strain state of the films is studied using Geometric Phase Analysis (GPA). Results show the successful in-plane adaptation of the films to the substrates, both in the compressive (LAO) and tensile (LSAT) cases. Through the systematic analysis of HRTEM superstructure contrast modulation along different crystal orientations, localized regions of the monoclinic LaNiO2.5 phase are detected in the 35 nm films.

    Hasta ahora se pensaba que la superconductividad y el magnetismo eran fenómenos excluyentes, pero investigadores del Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Barcelona y del Sincrotrón ALBA han encontrado una nueva fuente de magnetismo derivada de defectos puntuales en un tipo de superconductor: los cupratos de alta temperatura. El descubrimiento ayudará a mejorar las propiedades de estos materiales.
