Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have successfully prepared Sr2RuO4 crystals with Tc = 1.49 K by optimizing crystal growth conditions with a floating-zone method. In that process, we observed two intriguing eutectic solidification systems: (1) Ru metal embedded in the Sr2RuO4 matrix, and (2) epitaxial-like intergrowth of ferromagnetic SrRuO3 on Sr2RuO4.
