The authors report about La0.67Sr0.33MnO3 single crystal manganite thin films in interaction with a gold capping layer. With respect to uncoated manganite layers of the same thickness, Au-capped 4 nm thick manganite films reveal a dramatic reduction (≃185 K) of the Curie temperature TC and a lower saturation low temperature magnetization M0. A sizable TC reduction (≃60 K) is observed even when an inert SrTiO3 layer is inserted between the gold film and the 4 nm thick manganite layer, suggesting that this effect might have an electrostatic origin.
