The field of oxide spintronics can strongly benefit from the establishment of ferromagnetic insulators with near room-temperature Curie temperature. Here, we investigate the structural, electronic, and magnetic properties of epitaxially strained thin films of the double perovskite La2NiMnO6 (LNMO) grown by off-axis radio-frequency magnetron sputtering. We find that the films retain insulating behavior and a bulk-like Curie temperature in the order of 280 K independently of the epitaxial strain conditions. These results suggest a prospective implementation of LNMO films in multi-layer device architectures where a high-temperature ferromagnetic insulating state is a prerequisite. Show more
