Abstract

The atomic arrangement in a solid contains a great amount of information, and observation of its structure is essential for understanding the electronic and magnetic properties of transition metal oxides at a microscopic level. Increasing interest in the surfaces and interfaces of oxide systems, which is partly driven by the anticipation of device applications, enhances the importance of structural studies of the near-surface region. We review various types of structural studies with x-ray scattering on the near-surface region of metal oxidesfrom thick films to surfacesin order to clarify the structural effects on their electronic properties.
