Possible routes to superconductivity in the surface layers of V-doped Mg$_{1-\delta}$Ti$_2$O$_4$ through multiple charge transfers and suppression of Jahn-Teller activity

Superconductivity in the family of spinel oxides is very rare owing to their robust Mott-insulating nature. About half a century ago, LiTi 2 O 4 became the first reported spinel compound to show



Superconductivity in the Spinel Compound LiTi2O4

LiTi 2 O 4 has been the subject of considerable experimental and theoretical interest since the discovery of its superconductivity by Johnston et al. 1 This unique, low-T c (11.2 K) spinel oxide

Enhanced Superconductivity in Rock-Salt TiO

A new method to synthesize rock-salt TiO in a sealed and evacuated quartz tube by using KClO4 as the only oxygen source to react with elemental Ti (in a Ti/O molar ratio of 1:1).

Role of 3d electrons in the rapid suppression of superconductivity in the dilute V doped spinel superconductor LiTi2O4

The microscopic effects of V doping in LiTi2O4 have been poorly understood. The present study employs x-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) and resonant inelastic soft-x-ray scattering (RIXS)

Superconductivity in Ti4O7 and γ-Ti3O5 films

It is concluded that the superconductivity arises from unstabilized bipolaronic insulating states with the assistance of oxygen non-stoichiometry and epitaxial stabilization.

The effects of oxygen in spinel oxide Li1+xTi2−xO4−δ thin films

It is suggested that the decrease Tch can be attributed to the suppressing of orbital-related state, and the inhomogeneous phase separated regions contribute positive MR and thereby lead to the reverse relation between Tch and oxygen pressure.

Epitaxial Stabilization of Oxides in Thin Films

A survey of recent experimental results is given, presenting the growth of oxide epitaxial thin films in P−T−x conditions, which are far from those necessary for the existence of corresponding phases

Observation of superconductivity in structure-selected Ti2O3 thin films

The search for new superconductors capable of carrying loss-free current has been a research theme in condensed matter physics for the past decade. Among superconducting compounds, titanates have not

Enhanced superconductivity in TiO epitaxial thin films

Titanium oxides have many fascinating optical and electrical properties, such as the superconductivity at 2 K in cubic titanium monoxide (TiO) polycrystalline bulk. However, the lack of TiO single
