'Sandwich' structure key to thin LSMO films retaining magnetic properties

The oxide ceramic material lanthanum strontium manganite (LSMO) retains its magnetic properties in atomically thin layers if it is 'sandwiched' between two layers of a different ceramic oxide, lanthanum strontium chromium oxide. The findings have implications for future use of LSMO in spintronic-based computing and storage devices.
