A rather unique feature of the two-dimensional electron gas formed at the interface between the two insulators LaAlO3 and SrTiO3 is to host both gate-tunable superconductivity and strong spin-orbit coupling. In the present work, we use the disorder generated by Cr substitution of Al atoms in LaAlO3 as a tool to explore the nature of superconductivity and spin-orbit coupling in these interfaces. We analyze the transport properties of three different samples whose only relevant difference is their elastic scattering time tau(e). A reduction of the superconducting T-c is observed with Cr doping consistent with an increase of electron-electron interaction in the presence of disorder. In addition, the evolution of spin-orbit coupling with gate voltage and Cr doping evidences a Dyakonov-Perel mechanism of spin relaxation (tau(SO) proportional to tau(-1)(e)) in the presence of a Rashba-type spin-orbit interaction.
