A detailed study of the long-range, nanoscale, and local structure of La[sub 0.8]MnO[sub 3] films of varying thickness was performed. These measurements give insight on the relative volumes of the insulating and metallic regions. A thin metallic surface region is found in all films. The nature of the film growth is also discussed. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
