  Two-dimensional electron gases (2DEGs) formed at the interface between two oxide insulators provide new opportunities for electronics. However, despite of intensive research, it remains a major challenge to increase the mobility of the 2DEG or to order the emerging properties on demand. Herein, I will present our studies on extreme mobility enhancement at LaMnO3-buffered LaAlO3/SrTiO3 (LAO/STO) interface [1] and the tunable ground states of diluted LAO/STO interface [2]. Moreover, I will present our recent results on the intrinsic band dispersion of the 2DEGs in these engineered LAO/STO heterostructures, where the LMO buffer layer is found to suppress not only the formation of oxygen vacancies but also the electron-phonon interaction on the STO side, making the buffered sample different from any other STO-based interfaces including the Mn-diluted LAO/STO system.
