The generic perovskite unit cell is a simple cube of formula ABO3 where A and B are respectively a large and a small cation. Depending on the nature of cations, the substitutions on either cationic site, and the amount and possible order of oxygen vacancies, perovskite oxides span an extremely wide range of solid state electronic and magnetic properties. Associating them by epitaxy creates a large field of research towards applications in the microelectronics area, in a context where silicon-based technology faces major challenges.
