The magnetism of a buried La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 interface
Using x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) techniques, we have investigated the electronic structure and magnetic properties of La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 (LSMO) as a function of YBa2Cu3O7-δ(YBCO) cap layer thickness. The Mn L2,3 XAS and XMCD data clearly show that the magnetic properties and electronic structure of the LSMO are adversely affected by the YBCO overlayer caused by cation displacement/exchange that effectively reduces the concentration of the La atoms in the LSMO near the YBCO/LSMO interface. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
