Abstract

We have studied the surface composition and structure of colossal magneto-resistive perovskite thin films of La0.65Pb0.35MnO3. Depending on the annealing treatments, the thin film surface exhibits wildly different behavior and composition. With a gentle annealing procedure, the surface is dominated by appreciable Pb segregation, whereas a heavily annealed surface undergoes an irreversible restructuring into a Ruddlesden-Popper phase (La1-xPbx)2MnO4. The measured effective Debye temperatures of the two surfaces shows that the Pb-rich La0.65Pb0.35MnO3 surface region is softer than the surface of the Ruddlesden-Popper phase.
