FIG. 1.

AFM image of the SrTiO3 substrate surface after the chemical treatment and annealing, showing the formation of large, atomic flat, well regulated terraces. The inset shows a height profile corresponding to the indicated line.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

2- x-ray diffraction selected area scans of 40 nm thick Co:TiO2 films with and without the 5 nm thick TiO2 layer. The scans were shifted vertically for better visibility. The inset shows the XRD rocking curve for the buffered film.

FIG. 3.

AFM images of Co:TiO2 films grown grown (a) with and (b) without the TiO2 buffer layer.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Magnetic hysteresis loops performed at 5 K for the (a) unbuffered and (b) buffered Co:TiO2 films and on the bare SrTiO3 substrate.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

The Ti and Co 2p XPS spectra for the unbuffered Co:TiO2 film.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Cross-sectional bright field image of the Co:TiO2 unbuffered film. Inset shows a high resolution TEM image of the emphasized region containing surface clusters.

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

EDX elemental mappings of a region in the unbuffered Co:TiO2 film containing surface clusters.
