The mechanisms and the fundamental interactions controlling the formation and the competition of different phenomena driven by the electronic correlations, dimensionality and relativistic effects in transition metal oxides are a remarkable topic in condensed matter physics. The study of the correlation between the physical properties and microstructure of the eutectic ruthenates oxides is important to shed light on this issue. Such materials allow the possibility of merging together, in a single composite crystal, individual constituents with unconventional superconducting and magnetic behaviors. They represent a relevant example in the design of new layered compounds offering heterostructures with ad hoc functionalities valuable for novel potential applications.
