Epitaxial LaNiO3 thin films: A normal metal barrier for SNS junction

  • M. S. Hegde (a1), K. M. Satyalakshmi (a2), R. M. Mallya (a2), M. Rajeswari (a3) and H. Zhang (a3)...

Epitaxial LaNiO3 thin films have been grown on SrTiO3 and several other substrates by pulsed laser deposition. The films are observed to be metallic down to 15 K, and the temperature dependence of resistivity is similar to that of bulk LaNiO3. Epitaxial, c-axis oriented YBa2Cu3O7-x films with good superconducting properties have been grown on the LaNiO3 (100) films. I-V characteristics of the YBa2Cu3O7-x-LaNiO3 junction are linear, indicating ohmic contact between them.
