  epitaxial heterostructures provide an exquisite platform to manipulate the structure and electronic properties of oxide perovskites. interfacial structural coupling therein has attracted tremendous interests. through such coupling, the epi layer can be induced in an otherwise unstable lattice structure in resemblance to the substrate material, thereby realizing emergent structural and electronic phases. notably, such coupling is a short-range effect, being typically limited to an interfacial region of approximately 3 nm or below. with the film thickness increasing, the epi layer is supposed to relax into a misfit strain-dominated state. therefore, a structural transition is likely to occur spatially along the thickness direction. in addition, as a result of the interfacial symmetry mismatch, the structure of the epi layer may exhibit degenerated orientation states, i.e., forming twin domains. in this talk, the consequences of these two effects will be discussed in a heterostructure containing a prototypical ferromagnetic metal, srruo3. first, i will discuss a polar ferromagnetic phase arising from the strain gradient accompanying the structural transition. second, i will show that the symmetry-mismatch-induced twin domains in srruo3 are strongly coupled to its magnetism, resulting in robust magnetic domains. more interestingly, exotic spin textures with finite spin chirality emerge from these domain walls, which sustain a large magnetic field (up to 24 t) in a broad temperature window (from low temperature up to 160 k).
