Growth and magnetic structure of La{sub 0.67}Sr{sub 0.33}MnO{sub 3} films

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Growth of LaMnO{sub 3} films that exhibit colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) has concentrated heavily on Ca doped materials. However, since the 33% Sr doped films are ferromagnetic at room temperature, they are ideal candidates for dual growth-magnetic structure studies using scanned probe techniques. In this study, interest was focused on the relations between growth/processing parameters, film morphology, and electronic/magnetic properties. In addition, films were grown on both LaAlO{sub 3} (LAO) and SrTiO{sub 3} (STO) to examine the results of stress induced by different substrate mismatches. La{sub 0.67}Sr{sub 0.33}MnO{sub 3} (LSMO) was grown using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) at temperatures between 500 ... continued below

In addition, films were grown on both LaAlO{sub 3} (LAO) and SrTiO{sub 3} (STO) to examine the results of stress induced by different substrate mismatches. La{sub 0.67}Sr{sub 0.33}MnO{sub 3} (LSMO) was grown using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) at temperatures between 500 C and 800 C. The film microstructure, crystallinity, and magnetic and electrical properties were characterized by room temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), magnetic force microscopy (MFM), x-ray diffraction, and temperature dependent transport and magnetization measurements. The growth trends follow those previously reported for Ca doped films. Grains increase in size with increasing temperature and coalesce into extended layers after annealing. Although topographic contributions complicate interpretation of some MFM data, local magnetic structure observed here is generally associated with film defects.
