Strontium manganate (SrMnO3), a perovskite polymorph, exhibits cubic structure at low temperatures, which transforms under tensile strain into a G-type-antiferromagnetic (G-AFM) antiferrodistortive polar phase in the plane parallel to the substrate[1]. Recently, ferroelectric domains have been observed experimentally in 20nm thin films of SrMnO3 under 1.7% tensile strain on (001)-oriented LSAT grown in an oxygen-deficient atmosphere[2]. Strikingly, the individual domains show different conductance features, whereas the domain walls were found to be electrically insulating, rendering the domains to form stable nano-capacitors with high charge rention times.

Here, we present a detailed first-principle investigation of the domain wall formation in strained SrMnO3, their electronic properties and the influence of oxygen vacancies on the 2D-electron gas at the polar domain walls. Preliminary results on the migration energetics of the oxygen vacancies are expected.
