We report the observation of unusually large exchange-bias fields and a rare vertical magnetization shift, both attributes of spintronic functionalities, in atypical epitaxial bilayers of paramagnetic-metallic CaRuO3 and antiferromagnetic insulating manganite. Both the and the vertical shift, manifesting as a result of the formation of a ferromagnetic layer at the interface of two non-ferromagnetic layers, are more pronounced for tensile epitaxial strain modulated structures. This generated in bilayers with paramagnetic CaRuO3 is significantly larger than that observed in the bilayers formed with the ferromagnetic counterpart SrRuO3, thus, revealing that the originating from the interface ferromagnetic order is predominantly stronger than that induced by the conventional ferromagnetic layers.
