Magnetic and electronic properties at the gamma-Al2O3/SrTiO3 interfaceJan 28 2019The magnetic and electronic nature of the gamma-Al2O3/SrTiO3 spinel/perovskite interface is explored by means of x-ray absorption spectroscopy. Polarized x-ray techniques combined with atomic multiplet calculations reveal localized magnetic moments assigned ... More
