Density functional characterization of the electronic structure and visible-light absorption of Cr-doped anatase TiO(2).

To evaluate the electronic and optical properties of Cr-doped anatase TiO(2), three possible Cr-doped TiO(2) models, including Cr at a Ti site (model I), Cr at a Ti site with an oxygen vacancy compensation (model II), and an interstitial Cr site (model III), are studied by means of first principles density functional theory calculations. In model I, the… CONTINUE READING
