Using X-ray absorption spectroscopy and electron energy loss spectroscopy with atomic-scale spatial resolution, experimental evidence for charge transfer at the interface between the Mott insulators Sm2CuO4 and LaFeO3 is obtained. As a consequence of the charge transfer, the Sm2CuO4 is doped with electrons and thus epitaxial Sm2CuO4/LaFeO3 heterostructures become metallic.
