Sloppy, Taheri, and colleagues publish in the Journal of the Electrochemical Society

Jennifer Sloppy, Dr. Taheri, and colleagues’ latest paper, titled “Structural investigation of perovskite manganite and ferrite films on yttria-stabilized zirconia substrates” has been published online in theJournal of the Electrochemical Society.

From the abstract: “Here, we report the growth of La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 and La0.7Sr0.3FeO3 films on YSZ (001) substrates using molecular beam epitaxy. Particular emphasis is placed on the structural properties of the film and interface, which are of fundamental importance to all future studies in which model thin film systems are used to investigate interfacial reactions and morphological changes that arise at high temperatures or under polarization. Using a combination of X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy, we find a columnar microstructure with a uniform crystallographic orientation present along the out-of-plane film direction and preferred in-plane orientations relative to the substrate.”
