A Metal-Insulator Transition of the Buried MnO2 Monolayer in Complex Oxide Heterostructure. Advanced Materials 28(41): 9142-9151.

Author(s) from Durham


A novel artificially created MnO2 monolayer system is demonstrated in atomically controlled epitaxial perovskite heterostructures. With careful design of different electrostatic boundary conditions, a magnetic transition as well as a metal–insulator transition of the MnO2 monolayer is unveiled, providing a fundamental understanding of dimensionality‐confined strongly correlated electron systems and a direction to design new electronic devices.
