Abstract : This thesis work deals with the magnetic, orbital and transport properties of (LaMnO3)2N(SrMnO3)N digital superlattices and of LaxMnO3-d thin films, both deposited by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) technique on SrTiO3 substrates. The (LaMnO3)2N(SrMnO3)N digital superlattices represent the new kind of heterostructure, actually under intensive study, composed by an integer number of unit cells, where electronic reconstruction effects at the (clean) interface are expected. In the first part of the thesis work, optical lithography techniques and different deposition techniques are employed in order to perform transport measurement in current perpendicular to plane (CPP) configuration and field effect measurements. The CPP technique would allow to gain more information respect to the in-plane measurements as the ones used in the first part of the thesis. Field effect has been widely investigated in manganite (especially LMO-based) systems, as it represents a method to tune the carrier density, and in order to engineer all oxide field effect devices. The results of the optimization of such techniques, together with the optimization of the materials needed as base electrode, side and gate insulators and top electrode is reported. In the second part of the thesis, both LaMnO3-based systems where studied by traditional techniques (transport measurements, SQUID magnetometer) and soft X-ray absorption and emission techniques by synchrotron radiation. Collecting the data from different measurement techniques, precious information about ferromagnetism, antiferromagnetism and orbital ordering is obtained.
