Collaborative Paper on LaMnO3-SrTiO3 Interfaces Published in Advanced Materials Interfaces

Our collaborative paper on LaMnO3 (LMO)/SrTiO3 (STO) interfaces has been published in Advanced Materials Interfaces. This work, led by Dr. Tiffany Kaspar at Pacific Northwest National Lab, explores changes to Mn valence in LMO at the interface with STO, showing that Mn is partially reduced to a 2+ valence at the interface due to the polar discontinuity between STO and LMO. This has important implications for understanding the behavior of oxide spintronic materials, where manganese-based oxides are of considerable interest.
