Resumen

We demonstrate that a combination of electronic structure modification and oxygen vacancy ordering can stabilize a long-range ferromagnetic ground state in epitaxial LaCoO_(3) thin films. Highest saturation magnetization values are found in the thin films in tension on SrTiO_(3) and (La,Sr)(Al,Ta)O_(3) substrates and the lowest values are found in thin films in compression on LaAlO_(3). Electron microscopy reveals oxygen vacancy ordering to varying degrees in all samples, although samples with the highest magnetization are the most defective. Element-specific x-ray absorption techniques reveal the presence of high spin Co^(2+) and Co^(3+) as well as low spin Co^(3+) in different proportions depending on the strain state. The interactions among the high spin Co ions and the oxygen vacancy superstructure are correlated with the stabilization of the long-range ferromagnetic order.
