Growth and properties of fully strained SrCoOx (x approximate to 2.8) thin films on DyScO3
High quality epitaxial SrCoOx (oxygen deficient SrCoO3) thin films were grown on (110) DyScO3 substrates by pulsed laser deposition.The disappearance of half order peaks in X-ray diffraction as well as the XAS at the O K-edge indicates an oxygen content of x approximate to 2.8 in the thin films. Magnetization measurements reveal that the specific substrate strain suppresses the ferromagnetism found in the corresponding bulk material and the emergence of an antiferromagnetic-type spin correlation as predicted by theoretical calculations. Our work demonstrates that the magnetism can be tuned by in-plane strain in SrCoOx thin films.
