Abstract

We show that yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) films deposited on structurally dissimilar SrTiO_(3)(110) substrates exhibit two-dimensional layer-by-layer growth. We observed that, up to a thickness of about 15 nm, the square (001) basal plane of the cubic YSZ grows epitaxially on the rectangular (110) crystallographic plane of SrTiO3 substrates, with [110]YSZ(001)//[001]SrTiO_(3)(110) epitaxial relationship. Thus, the heterointerface presents symmetry discontinuity between the YSZ(001) film and the lower surface symmetry SrTiO_(3)(110) substrate. Beyond this specific case, we envisage similar approaches to develop other innovative oxide interfaces showing similar crystal symmetry discontinuities.
