Paper: Quasistatic antiferromagnetism in the quantum wells of SmTiO3/SrTiO3 heterostructures
February 20, 2018
Our paper exploring heterostructures comprised of SrTiO3 quantum wells embedded within an SmTiO3 Mott matrix was published. By using a combination of low energy muon relaxation measurements with polarized neutron reflectometry, we uncovered a the formation of incipient antiferromagentism in the quantum wells coincident with pseudogap formation and quantum critical magnetotransport. This suggests that the essential physics of pseudogap states in bulk transition metal oxides can be captured in this highly controlled thin film architecture.
