Tailored quantum materials
Research report (imported) 2019 - Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research
At interfaces between complex transition metal oxides with different structural, electronic, and magnetic properties, new phases can form that are not present in the phase diagrams of the individual components. In a heterostructure with ultrathin multilayers, these interface properties dominate and thus enable the targeted realization of new, technologically usable materials. Our group investigates model systems using x-ray spectroscopy with the aim of deriving general principles for modifications at interfaces.
