  • Publication number: 20120058323
    Abstract: A two-dimensional vertical heteroepitaxial strain controlled composite is grown. The strain-controlling phase can be benign in all other respects so that the functional properties of the parent phase are unchanged, improved/enhanced, and/or manipulated. The new composite is advantageous because there is no need for expensive specialized crystals and because there are no thickness limitations.

  • Publication number: 20140346423
    Abstract: Films having a comb-like structure of nanocolumns of Sm2O3 embedded in a SrTiO3 formed spontaneously on a substrate surface by pulsed laser deposition. In an embodiment, the nanocolumns had a width of about 20 nm with spaces between nanocolumns of about 10 nm. The films exhibited memristive behavior, and were extremely uniform and tunable. Oxygen deficiencies were located at vertical interfaces between the nanocolumns and the matrix. The substrates may be single-layered or multilayered.

  • Publication number: 20120177902
    Abstract: Multiferroic articles including highly resistive, strongly ferromagnetic strained thin films of BiFe0.5Mn0.5O3 (“BFMO”) on (001) strontium titanate and Nb-doped strontium titanate substrates were prepared. The films were tetragonal with high epitaxial quality and phase purity. The magnetic moment and coercivity values at room temperature were 90 emu/cc (H=3 kOe) and 274 Oe, respectively. The magnetic transition temperature was strongly enhanced up to approximately 600 K, which is approximately 500 K higher than for pure bulk BiMnO3.
