This chapter reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress in manganite multilayers. Manganites have been intensively studied in the past two decades for their colossal magnetoresistance and multiferroicity. By combining two manganites (e.g. LaMnO3 and SrMnO3) together in superlattices and heterostructures, novel electronic states emerge around the interfaces that are distinct from what is found in bulk materials. These arise due to reconstructions of interfacial electronic and magnetic structure, influenced not only by charge transfer across the interface, but also interfacial lattice strain and reconstructions of the orbital degrees of freedom. Some other interesting multilayers incorporating a manganite and one other oxide are also discussed.

Keywords: manganite; multilayer; charge transfer; interfacial magnetism; metal-insulator transition
