Strain-Controlled Responsiveness of Slave Half-Doped Manganite La0.5Sr0.5MnO3 Layers Inserted in BaTiO3 Ferroelectric Tunnel Junctions

Greta Radaelli,* Diego Gutiérrez, Mengdi Qian, Ignasi Fina, Florencio Sánchez, Lorenzo Baldrati, Jakoba Heidler, Cinthia Piamonteze, Riccardo Bertacco, Josep Fontcuberta*. Adv. Elec. Materials  22nd Nov. 2016, DOI: 10.1002/aelm.201600368 

In ferroelectric BaTiO3 tunnel junctions, integrating tensile strained slave La0.5Sr0.5MnO3 (HD) layers, polarization reversal promotes an orbital-reordering and a concomitant metal–insulator transition in the HD layer that largely enhances the electroresistance of the junctions. Radically different results are obtained under compressive strain.

  • Imaging how magnetism goes surfing

    Using ALBA’s synchrotron light, researchers have been able to visualise deformation (sound) waves in crystals and measured the effect on nanomagnetic elements. The study, published today in Nature Communications, uses the accelerators’ time structure to record time resolved images with a resolution of 80 picoseconds. The methodology offers a new approach for analysing dynamic strains in other research fields: nanoparticles, chemical reactions, crystallography, etc.
