Title: Thickness-dependent magnetic and electrical transport properties of epitaxial La 0.7Sr 0.3CoO 3 films

Abstract

The thickness-dependent magnetic and electrical transport properties of nearly strain-free La 0.7Sr 0.3CoO 3 (LSCO) films grown on (001)-oriented (LaAlO 3 ) 0.3 (Sr 2AlTaO 6) 0.7 substrates were systematically studied. A crossover from ferromagnetic/metallic to non-magnetic/insulating behavior occurs at a critical thickness (~8 nm) that is significantly smaller than LSCO films under larger strains in reported literature. X-ray absorption measurements revealed that the difference of functional properties at reduced film thicknesses was accompanied by changes in the valence state of Co ions at the film/substrate interface.
