By using a technique of thermoreflectance that can precisely measure the thermal conductivity of thin films, we found that the thermal conductivity of SrVO3-SrTiO3 multilayer thin films normal to the surface was substantially reduced by decreasing the thickness of each layer. This indicates that a large intrinsic thermal resistance exists at the interface between SrVO3 and SrTiO3 in spite of the similar phononic properties for these two compounds.
