    Inverse photoemission studies of the interface formed when Fe is deposited onto the high-temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3O6.9 show that Fe leaches oxygen from the near surface region to nucleate an insulating form of Fe-O. Ultimately, a metallic Fe layer grows but it has surface segregated Ba,...
