English We used infrared spectroscopic ellipsometry to investigate the electronic properties of LaTiO₃/SrTiO₃ superlattices (SLs). Our results indicated that, independent of the SL periodicity and individual layer thickness, the SLs exhibited a Drude metallic response with sheet carrier density per interface ≈3×10¹⁴ cm⁻². This is probably due to the leakage of <i>d</i> electrons at interfaces from the... Show more…
