Paper: Octahedral tilt independent magnetism in confined GdTiO3 films

April 02, 2018

Our paper exploring the effect of octaheral tilts on the ferrimagnetic groundstate of GdTiO3 appeared in Applied Physics Letters.  In this paper, we resolve that the ferrimagnetic ground state of GdTiO3 remains suprisingly robust despite a substantial renormalization of the t2g bandwidth due to the interface driven relaxation of the octahedral tilts.  Our work points toward the formation of magnetic deadlayers at interfaces that account for the apparent reduction in magnetization as the GdTiO3 layers are thinned.
