For the Ti/O system, three titanium monoxide (TiO) phases (α, β, and γ) with defective NaCl-type structures and a high-temperature hexagonal phase (H) have been known for decades. In this work, single crystals of a novel polymorph, ɛ-TiO, were synthesized by using a bismuth flux. X-ray diffraction (XRD) revealed a hexagonal crystal structure (a=4.9936(3… CONTINUE READING
