Title: Single-Crystalline SrRuO 3 Nanomembranes: A Platform for Flexible Oxide Electronics

The field of oxide electronics has benefited from the wide spectrum of functionalities available to the ABO 3 perovskites, and researchers are now employing defect engineering in single crystalline heterostructures to tailor properties. However, bulk oxide single crystals are not conducive to many types of applications, particularly those requiring mechanical flexibility. Here, we demonstrate the realization of an all-oxide, single-crystalline nanomembrane heterostructure. With a surface-to-volume ratio of 2 × 10 7 , the nanomembranes are fully flexible and can be readily transferred to other materials for handling purposes or for new materials integration schemes. Using in situ synchrotron X-ray scattering, we find that the nanomembranes can bond to other host substrates near room temperature and demonstrate coupling between surface reactivity and electromechanical properties in ferroelectric nanomembrane systems. Finally, the synthesis technique described here represents a significant advancement in materials integration and provides a new platform for the development of flexible oxide electronics.
