Title: High-pressure floating-zone growth of perovskite nickelate LaNiO3 single crystals

Abstract

We report the first single crystal growth of the correlated metal LaNiO3 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 LaNiO3 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 pO2 single crystal growth of nickelate perovskites and correlated electron oxides more generally.
