Lanthanum-strontium manganite (La0.8Sr0.2MnO3, LSMO) is a perovskite oxide used as a cathode material in solid oxide fuel cells, which convert chemical energy to electrical energy. To gain deeper insights into the reaction mechanisms, it is important to understand the structure of the surface at the atomic scale. To this end, we grow atomically flat single-crystalline LSMO(001) thin films on Nb-doped SrTiO3 (STO) substrates via pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The as-grown films have a B-site (Mn) rich surface that can be transformed into an A-site (La/Sr) rich structure by Ar+ sputtering and subsequent annealing. The B-site rich surface is recovered by depositing Mn from a MnO target. In low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), the Mn-rich surface shows a 4-fold symmetric structure that is best explained by a set of four basis vectors. This is reminiscent of quasicrystals. Scanning tunneling microscopy reveals a non-periodic structure with a Fourier transform consistent with the LEED pattern.
