Structure and transport properties of coherently strained La2/3Ca1/3MnO3/SrTiO3 superlattices

242_08/2005The front cover of this issue, taken from the Editor's Choice, displays the structural characterization of coherently strained La2/3Ca1/3MnO3/SrTiO3 superlattices prepared by laser molecular beam epitaxy [1]. The pronounced superlattice Bragg peaks and the Kiessig fringes indicate an excellent superlattice structure. The superlattice modulation period is obtained by fitting sin2 &thetas;n2 and also specular low-angle X-ray reflectivity. The correlated interface roughness is confirmed by offset low-angle X-ray reflectivity and low-angle rocking curve.

First author Yafeng Lu was a PhD student in the group led by Prof. R. Gross. His research interests are magnetic materials, superconducting materials, and surface physics.
