Abstract

Resistance as a function of temperature down to 20 mK and magnetic fields up to 18 T for various carrier concentrations is measured for nanowires made from the SrTiO3/LaAlO3 interface using a hard mask shadow deposition technique. The narrow width of the wires (of the order of 50 nm) allows us to separate out the magnetic effects from the dominant superconducting ones at low magnetic fields. At this regime hysteresis loops are observed along with the superconducting transition. From our data analysis, we find that the magnetic order probed by the giant magnetoresistance effect vanishes at TCurie=954±20mK. This order is not a simple ferromagnetic state but consists of domains with opposite magnetization having a preferred in-plane orientation.
