Title: Thickness-dependent polarization-induced intrinsic magnetoelectric effects in L a 0.67 S r 0.33 Mn O 3 / PbZ r 0.52 T i 0.48 O 3 heterostructures

Abstract

The polarization of PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3 thin film is switched by changing film thickness through the competition between the strain relaxation-induced flexoelectric fields and the interfacial effects. Without an applied electric field, this reversal of polarization is exploited to control the magnetic properties of La0.67Sr0.33MnO3 by the competition/cooperation between the charge-mediated and the strain-mediated effects. Scanning transmission electron microscopy, polarized near-edge x-ray absorption spectroscopy, and half-integer diffraction measurements are employed to decode the intrinsic magnetoelectric effects in the La0.67Sr0.33MnO3/PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3 heterostructures. With PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3 films <48 nm, the polarization-driven carrier density modulation around the La0.67ST0.33MnO3/PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3 interface and the strain-mediated Mn 3d orbital occupancy work together to enhance the magnetism of 14-unit-cell La0.67Sr0.33MnO3 film; with PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3 layers >48 nm, the strain-induced change of bond length/angle of MnO6 accompanied with a modified spin configuration are responsible for the decrease in the Curie temperature and magnetization of 14-unit-cell La0.67Sr0.33MnO3 film.
