Abstract

First-principles calculations predict the existence of a spin-polarized two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) at the LaO/EuO interface in a LaAlO3/EuO(001) heterostructure. This polar interface favors electron doping into the Eu-5d conduction bands resulting in a 2DEG formed at the interface.
