Abstract

The rare-earth nickelates (LnNiO3, Ln = lanthanide) are interesting from both fundamental and applied perspectives, but synthesis remains a bottleneck to research due to their thermodynamic instability. Here we report the synthesis of SmNiO3 thin films on oxidized silicon wafers by physical vapor deposition
