C.; Herranz, G.; Sánchez, F.; Fontcuberta, J.; Córdoba, R.; Mendis, B. G.; Bleloch, A. L. // Applied Physics Letters;8/17/2009, Vol. 95 Issue 7, p072507 

    Electron-energy-loss spectroscopy is used to map composition and electronic states in epitaxial La2/3Ca1/3MnO3 (LCMO) films of various thicknesses grown on SrTiO3 (001) and (110) substrates. For relatively thick films (≥20 nm), epitaxial tensile strain in (001) films promotes a...

    We report an unique planar defect that draws the Nazca Lines in epitaxially grown La2/3-xLi3xTiO3 (LLTO) (x ≈ 0.11) ion-conductive perovskite. Transmission electron microscopy and electron energy loss spectroscopy reveal that the lines are produced by changing the regular arrangement of...

    The electron energy loss (EEL) spectra of thin NTCDA films on the ZnO(0001) surface were measured. In the low-energy range (<60 eV), the EEL spectra (displaying the characteristic loss peaks at E[sub loss] = 4.0, 5.6, 12.5, and 14.5 eV) reflect the structure of transitions between the valence...
