Sandwich System of Transition Metal Oxides Helps Control Properties of Interfaces

Sandwich System of Transition Metal Oxides Helps Control Properties of Interfaces

A Franco-German cooperation has investigated a sandwich system of transition metal oxides at BESSY II. The scientists discovered a new option to control properties of the interface between the two layers, for instance the amount of charge transferred from one layer to the other or the emergence of ferromagnetism. Their insights might help to create new properties at the interface, not present in the primary materials, maybe even novel forms of High Tc superconductivity. [More]
