RHEED intensity oscillation monitored on the specular spot during the growth of the LSMO on STO substrate at 900 °C. Inset a1 and a2: RHEED pattern obtained before and after deposition, respectively. (b) Resistivity/magnetization vs temperature curves for LSMO thin films of 5 nm thickness. STM topographic images (1×1 um2) with set point (sample bias 0.7 V, current 0.5 nA) taken at (c) 300 K and (d) 105 K.
