Title: Signatures of enhanced ordering temperatures in digital superlattices of (LaMnO{sub 3}){sub m}/(SrMnO{sub 3}){sub 2m}.

Abstract

Digital superlattices of (LaMnO{sub 3}{sub m}/SrMnO{sub 3}){sub 2m} (m{<=}3) having the same nominal composition as La{sub 1/3}Sr{sub 2/3}MnO{sub 3}, an antiferromagnetic insulator, have been synthesized by means of molecular beam epitaxy. All superlattices show a sharp resistive maximum at temperatures near to or higher than the Neel temperature of bulk La{sub 1/3}Sr{sub 2/3}MnO{sub 3}. No discernible signatures of magnetic ordering are observed near the resistivity peak for m{<=}2, but m=3 has a susceptibility peak consistent with antiferromagnet ordering, which is canted when cooled in a small magnetic field. Analogies are drawn to d{sub x2-y2} orbitally ordered, layered antiferromagnetic manganites to explain the observations.
