Abstract: The two-dimensional conducting gas (2DCG) that forms at the interface between LaAlO3 (LAO) and SrTiO3 (STO) has been widely studied due to the multitude of in situ tunable phenomena that exist at the interface. Recently it has been shown that nearly every property of the 2DEG that forms at the interface of (111) oriented LAO/STO is strongly anisotropic with respect to the in-plane crystal direction. This in-plane rotational symmetry breaking points to the existence of an electronic nematic phase at the interface that can be modified by an in situ electrostatic back-gate potential. Here we show that the onset temperature of the anisotropy in the longitudinal resistance is T?22K, which does not match up with any known structural transition, and coincides with the onset of anisotropy in the Hall response of the system. Furthermore, below 22 K, charge transport is activated in nature with different activation energies along the two in-plane crystal directions. Such a response implies that the band edges along the two directions are different and provides further evidence of an electronic nematic state at the interface. © 2018 American Physical Society.
