Density-Driven Resistance Response in $MnS_{2}$: Theory

  title={Density-Driven Resistance Response in \$MnS\_\{2\}\$: Theory},
  author={Komal Kumari and Raman Sharma and Navinder Singh},
A colossal insulator-to-metal transition in high-spin pyrite phase of MnS2 has been experimentally observed [1]. There are two possibilities behind this colossal insulator-tometal transition: (1) migration of Mn electrons to unoccupied S2− 2 antibonding states under pressure which leads to conducting ligand states and hence metallic transition, and (2) possibility of band crossing transition. We have analyzed this experimental obervation theoretically using a toy statistical model and found…
