Engineering of functional thin film oxides and interfaces


The wide range of fascinating properties observed in complex oxide continue to attract great interest such as ferro-, piezo- and pyroelectricity. Several strategies have been employed to break the lattice symmetry and expand the range of functionalities.

Here, I will show how engineering symmetry breaking offers extraordinary opportunities such as, the birth of conductivity in real-time during growth, stabilizing phases which are otherwise not stable using highly coherent interfaces and enhancing the electromechanics with interfaces. I will also briefly discuss how external stimulus (magnetic, strain and light) can provide new properties. This collection of possibilities offers unique opportunities for a wide range of rich world and new functionality of complex oxide and their interfaces.
