Abstract

Through a proper choice of the mismatch between substrate and films, the physical properties of manganite thin films can be tailored We show that two types of manganite thin films of the Ruddlesden-Popper family, n=∞ and n=2, demonstrate a dramatic variation of their physical properties. It is proved that the property variation can be tuned precisely by controlling the lattice mismatch and/or the film thickness.
