28Transition metal oxides (TMOs) exhibit a rich variety of novel properties, which can be exploited for a wide range of applications including ultra-high-density magnetic data storage, spintronics, quantum computing and more recently thermal management applications. Thin films of TMOs offer enormous opportunities to explore intriguing physics and also practical applications. The discovery of high Tc superconductivity in cuprates has increased in recent years the interest for low-dimensional Heisenberg magnetic systems.Among these, the compound SrCuO2 (SCO) has drawn much attention. SCO in the orthorhombic structure, consisting of zigzag chains of Cu2+ ions, has been recently shown to exhibit sizeable magnetic heat transport; while SCO in the tetragonal structure exhibits the simplest structure with superconducting CuO2 planes (so called infinite layer compound).Depending on the phase and the orientation, SCO can then be used for different applications. While it has been possible to obtain bulk SCO only in the orthorhombic structure, in the thin film form this compound has only been stabilized in the tetragonal structure.
29Tetragonal StructureSrCuO2 (SCO) thin films were grown on(100) SrTiO3 and (100) MgO substrates.SrTiO3 substrates were treated with BHF etching to obtain a clean surface with TiO2termination layer.Orthorhombic Structure
