Title: High-pressure floating-zone growth of perovskite nickelate LaNiO 3 single crystals

We report the first single crystal growth of the correlated metal LaNiO 3 using a high-pressure optical-image floating zone furnace. The crystals were studied using single crystal/powder X-ray diffraction, resistivity, specific heat, and magnetic susceptibility. The availability of bulk LaNiO 3 crystals will (i) promote deep understanding in this correlated material, including the mechanism of enhanced paramagnetic susceptibility, and (ii) provide rich opportunities as a substrate for thin film growth such as important ferroelectric and/or multiferroic materials. As a result, this study demonstrates the power of high pO 2 single crystal growth of nickelate perovskites and correlated electron oxides more generally.
