Abstract

Combining different materials into desired superlattice structures can produce new electronic states at the interface and the opportunity to create artificial materials with novel properties. Here we introduce a new, rather unexpected, and yet simple way to such a superlattice assembly of perovskite oxides: in the Dion-Jacobson phase, a model system of layered perovskites, high-quality bicolor perovskite superlattices (LaNb2O 7)nL(Ca2Nb3O10) nC are successfully fabricated by a layer-by-layer assembly using two different perovskite nanosheets (LaNb2O7 and Ca 2Nb3O10) as a building block. The artificially fabricated (LaNb2O7/Ca2Nb3O 10) superlattices are structurally unique, which is not feasible to create in the bulk form. By such an artificial structuring, we found that (LaNb2O7/Ca2Nb3O10) superlattices possess a new form of interface coupling, which gives rise to ferroelectricity.
