Pair suppression caused by mosaic-twist defects in superconducting Sr<sub>2</sub>RuO<sub>4</sub> thin-films prepared using pulsed laser deposition Divitini, Giorgio Lee, Han Gyeol Komori, Sachio Di Bernardo, Angelo Vickers, Mary E. Komori, Sachio Kim, Jinkwon Yasui, Yuuki Sr<sub>2</sub>RuO<sub>4</sub> (SRO<sub>214</sub>) is a prototypical unconventional superconductor. However, since the discovery of its superconductivity a quarter of a century ago, the symmetry of the bulk and surface superconducting states in single crystal SRO<sub>214</sub> remains controversial. Solving this problem is massively impeded by the fact that superconducting SRO<sub>214</sub> is extremely challenging to achieve in thin-films as structural defects and impurities sensitively annihilate superconductivity. Here we report a protocol for the reliable growth of superconducting SRO<sub>214</sub> thin-films by pulsed laser deposition and identify universal materials properties that are destructive to the superconducting state. We demonstrate that careful control of the starting material is essential in order to achieve superconductivity and use a single crystal target of Sr<sub>3</sub>Ru<sub>2</sub>O<sub>7</sub> (SRO<sub>327</sub>). By systematically varying the SRO<sub>214</sub> film thickness, we identify mosaic twist as the key in-plane defect that suppresses superconductivity. The results are central to the development of unconventional superconductivity. 2020-06-25T07:48:08Z Yasui, Yuuki Garcia, Carla Maria Palomares eng 2020-06-25T07:48:08Z Garcia, Carla Maria Palomares Kimbell, Graham Lee, Han Gyeol Vickers, Mary E.
