Micro-fabrication process for small transport devices of layered manganite

Devices have been fabricated based on the bilayer manganite La1.4Sr1.6Mn2O7, which in the bulk state orders magnetically below 90 K, at which point both in-plane and c-axis bulk resistivity decrease by 2-3 orders of magnitude. We provide an optimized procedure to fabricate devices to electrical transport in- and out of plane. Fabricated mesoscopic devices have dimensions comparable to a typical magnetic domain, allowing us to study structures going from a single domain to several domains.
