This book is devoted to the rapidly developing field of oxide thin-films and heterostructures. Oxide materials combined with atomic-scale precision in a heterostructure exhibit an abundance of macroscopic physical properties involving the strong coupling between the electronic, spin, andstructural degrees of freedom, and the interplay between magnetism, ferroelectricity, and conductivity. Recent advances in thin-film deposition and characterization techniques made possible the experimental realization of such oxide heterostructures, promising novel functionalities and deviceconcepts. The book consists of chapters on some of the key innovations in the field over recent years, including strongly correlated oxide heterostructures, magnetoelectric coupling and multiferroic materials, thermoelectric phenomena, and two-dimensional electron gases at oxide interfaces. The book coversthe core principles, describes experimental approaches to fabricate and characterize oxide heterostructures, demonstrates new functional properties of these materials, and provides an overview of novel applications.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "Here at last is a text that will give those interested in the intriguing science of oxides much to think about. It serves as a fundamental information source on oxides as well as the rich topic of heterostructures, junctions between oxides. The stronglycorrelated electron behaviour is what makes oxides display many of their distinct optical, electronic and magnetic characteristics. This theme is explored by a range of authoritative reviews of every aspect of oxides and junctions between them, ranging from the fundamental physics to methods ofstudying them and new properties and devices that are starting to appear. This work will be invaluable to the experts and provide insight and inspiration to those wishing to learn about oxides." --Peter J. Dobson, Academic Director of Begbroke Science Park, University of Oxford
