In our prior paper, we reported forming (110)-oriented LaMnO3 on a biaxially textured Ni-3at%W substrate. Chemical analysis of these films subsequent to publishing the paper showed only La and O-there was no Mn present in the film. The film was actually (400)-oriented La2O3 with the cubic bixbyite structure. Subsequent studies also showed that MnO film is not stable on Ni and Ni-W substrate surfaces at 1100 degC and PO2 = 10-16 atm where bulk MnO is stable.
