The effect of crystallographic interface orientation on the electric transport properties of fully strained La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 films grown onto LaAlO3 substrates has been investigated. It is found that, relative to the (001) orientation, the (110) orientation strongly enhances the transport properties for film thickness in the range between 3 and 12 nm. Such an effect was ascribed to reduced [relative to the (001) substrates] tetragonal distortion induced by epitaxy onto (110)-oriented substrates. The reduced tetragonal distortion quenches the occupational imbalance between the Mn eg orbitals thus, ultimately, reinforcing the ferromagnetic double exchange transport mechanism.

    Silver crystals at the interface of silver thick film contacts carry the current across such contacts and therefore govern the contact resistance. The crystals grow nearly exclusively in pits in the silicon surface, which form during contact formation before the crystals and hence determine the...
