Metavalent Bonding in Crystalline Solids: How Does It Collapse?
Three different pseudo-binary lines are studied, and a sudden change in several properties, including optical absorption ε2 (ω), optical dielectric constant ε∞, and Born effective charge Z*, are evidenced, providing a blueprint to experimentally explore the influence of metavalent bonding on attractive properties of phase-change materials and thermoelectrics.
Approaching the Glass Transition Temperature of GeTe by Crystallizing Ge15Te85
Like many phase‐change materials, GeTe crystallizes upon heating at a conventional rate before the calorimetric glass transition is reached. This has so far prevented an unambiguous determination of
Chalcogenides by Design: Functionality through Metavalent Bonding and Confinement
Evidence will be presented that for metavalently bonded materials interesting effects arise in reduced dimensions, and the consequences for the crystallization kinetics of thin films and nanoparticles will be discussed in detail.
Discovering Electron-Transfer-Driven Changes in Chemical Bonding in Lead Chalcogenides (PbX, where X = Te, Se, S, O).
The insights gained from this study highlight the technological relevance of the concept of metavalent bonding and its potential for materials design.
Halide perovskites: third generation photovoltaic materials empowered by metavalent bonding
Third-generation photovoltaic (PV) materials combine many advantageous properties, including a high optical absorption together with a large charge carrier mobility, facilitated by small effective
The interplay between Peierls distortions and metavalent bonding in IV–VI compounds: comparing GeTe with related monochalcogenides
In this article, we revisit bonding in crystalline GeTe, a simple binary alloy that is also a popular Phase Change Material, and use an ab initio approach that goes beyond the usual one electron
