Nanoscale Correlations between Metal–Insulator Transition and Resistive Switching Effect in Metallic Perovskite Oxides
16 June 2020

Strongly correlated perovskite oxides are a class of materials with fascinating intrinsic physical functionalities due to the interplay of charge, spin, orbital ordering, and lattice degrees of freedom.

Among the exotic phenomena arising from such an interplay, metal–insulator transitions (MITs) are fundamentally still not fully understood and are of large interest for novel nanoelectronics applications, such as resistive switching‐based memories and neuromorphic computing devices. In particular, rare‐earth nickelates and lanthanum strontium manganites are archetypical examples of bandwidth‐controlled and band‐filling‐controlled MIT, respectively, which are used in this work as a playground to correlate the switching characteristics of the oxides and their MIT properties by means of local probe techniques in a systematic manner. These findings suggest that an electric‐field‐induced MIT can be triggered in these strongly correlated systems upon generation of oxygen vacancies and establish that lower operational voltages and larger resistance ratios are obtained in those films where the MIT lies closer to room temperature. This work demonstrates the potential of using MITs in the next generation of nanoelectronics devices.

  • High Performance of Superconducting YBa2Cu3O7 Thick Films Prepared by Single-Deposition Inkjet Printing

    Inkjet printing (IJP) is a very appealing cost-effective deposition technique to achieve large-area solution-derived functional films. For many applications, it is very challenging to increase the film thickness in order to achieve competitive performance, for instance, high critical currents in superconducting films. In this paper, the preparation of superconducting YBa2Cu3O7 thick films (∼1.1 μm) using a single deposition is reported. Specific rules for ink design, deposition protocols, and pyrolysis processes are provided.

    The functional properties of cuprates are strongly determined by the doping state and carrier density. We present an oxygen doping study of YBa2Cu3O7-δ (YBCO) thin films from underdoped to overdoped state, correlating the measured charge carrier density, nHnH, the hole doping, p, and the critical current density, Jc. Our results show experimental demonstration of strong increase of Jc with nH, up to Quantum Critical Point (QCP), due to an increase of the superconducting condensation energy.
  • Combinatorial Screening of Cuprate Superconductors by Drop-On-Demand Inkjet Printing

    Combinatorial and high-throughput experimentation (HTE) is achieving more relevance in material design, representing a turning point in the process of accelerated discovery, development, and optimization of materials based on data-driven approaches. The versatility of drop-on-demand inkjet printing (IJP) allows performing combinatorial studies through fabrication of compositionally graded materials with high spatial precision, here by mixing superconducting REBCO precursor solutions with different rare earth (RE) elements.
