The authors have investigated changes in the electronic structures of digitally controlled La0.6Sr0.4MnO3 (LSMO) layers sandwiched between SrTiO3 as a function of LSMO layer thickness in terms of hard x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (HX-PES). The HX-PES spectra show the evolution of Mn 3d derived states near the Fermi level and the occurrence of metal-insulator transition at 8 ML. The detailed analysis for the thickness dependent HX-PES spectra reveals the existence of the less conducting and nonmagnetic transition layer with a film thickness of about 4 ML in the interface region owing to significant interaction through the interface.
