High-resolution XRD scans of representative films in the series . The sharp substrate (004) peak overlaps with the corresponding film peak, and thickness fringes may be seen.
magnetization vs field loops for thick films with , 0.41, and 0.42. The magnetometer axis was parallel to the orthorhombic  film easy axis (Ref. 19). Inset: Corresponding loop for the target at .
Resistivity vs temperature for films with , 0.41, and 0.42. Inset: Resistance vs for the target. The small suppression in the transition temperature may be due to deoxygenation.
Thin film phase diagram for epitaxial on NGO in . Metal-insulator transition temperatures (▵) and ferromagnetic phase fractions (●) are plotted. The extrapolation of the boundary between the phase-separated metallic phase (PSM) and the paramagnetic-insulating (PMI) phase assumes that percolation requires a ferromagnetic fraction of 10%, which is a lower bound (Ref. 21). The inset shows the corresponding phase diagram for polycrystalline samples (data from Refs. 18 and 22) where the phase fraction of the ferromagnetic metallic phase (FMM) is for (Ref. 18). The open triangles (▵) correspond to metal-insulator transition temperatures.
Ferromagnetic volume fractions in the 20 and film series for , 0.41, and 0.42. Values calculated from dividing the saturation magnetization by the fully spin-aligned value .
