Ferromagnetic quantum phase transition in Sr1−xCaxRuO3 thin films — •Melanie Schneider, Vasile Moshnyaga, and Philipp Gegenwart — I. Physik. Institut, Georg-August Universität Goettingen, Friedrich-Hund-Platz 1, 37077 Goettingen
We report synthesis of Sr1−xCaxRuO3 thin films, which have been grown epitaxially on SrTiO3 substrates by metalorganic aerosol deposition technique characterized by x-ray diffraction and room-temperature STM. The physical properties were investigated by electrical resistivity and magnetization measurements. We observe a continuous suppression of itinerant electron magnetism with TC=160K for SrRuO3 with increasing Ca concentration x in Sr1−xCaxRuO3 towards TC→0 for xc≈0.8. Non-Fermi liquid behaviour in the electrical resistivity is analysed for thin films with x=0.8 and x=1 down to mK temperatures.
