Vanadium dioxide is of broad interest as a spin-12 electron system that realizes a metal-insulator transition near room temperature, due to a combination of strongly correlated and itinerant electron physics… 

Resonant inelastic x-ray incarnation of Young’s double-slit experiment

It is demonstrated that resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) measures interference patterns, which reveal the symmetry and character of electronic excited states in the same way as elastic scattering does for the ground state.

Orbital dynamics during an ultrafast insulator to metal transition

Phase transitions driven by ultrashort laser pulses have attracted interest both for understanding the fundamental physics of phase transitions and for potential new data storage or device

Magnetic-field-induced insulator–metal transition in W-doped VO2 at 500 T

It is shown that the metal-insulator transition in heavily doped vanadium dioxide can be driven by a magnetic field, suggesting the MI transition is due to structural instability.

Versatile Tunability of the Metal Insulator Transition in (TiO2)m/(VO2)m Superlattices

In contrast to perovskites that share only common corners of cation‐occupied octahedra, binary‐oxides in addition share edges and faces increasing the versatility for tuning the properties and

Ja n 20 20 Magnetic-field-induced insulator – metal transition in W-doped VO 2 at 500 T

Metal–insulator (MI) transitions in correlated electron systems have long been a central and controversial issue in material science. Vanadium dioxide (VO2) exhibits a first-order MI transition at

Basic aspects of the metal–insulator transition in vanadium dioxide VO 2 : a critical review

Vanadium dioxide exhibits a first order metal to insulator transition (MIT) at 340 K (TMI) from a rutile (R) structure to a monoclinic (M1) structure. The mechanism of this transition interpreted as

Prediction for the singlet-triplet excitation energy for the spinel MgTi2O4 using first-principles diffusion Monte Carlo

The spinel, MgTi$_2$O$_4$, undergoes a transition into a dimerized state at low temperatures that is expected to be a spin singlet. However, no signature of a singlet-triplet transition has been

Isostructural metal-insulator transition in VO2

An isostructural, purely electronically driven metal-insulator transition is demonstrated in epitaxial heterostructures of an archetypal correlated material, vanadium dioxide, to provide insights into phase transitions of correlated materials and may aid the design of device functionalities.

Local electronic structure of rutile RuO2

Recently, rutile ${\mathrm{RuO}}_{2}$ has raised interest for its itinerant antiferromagnetism, crystal Hall effect, and strain-induced superconductivity. Understanding and manipulating these

The metal–insulator phase change in vanadium dioxide and its applications

Vanadium dioxide is an unusual material that undergoes a first-order Metal–Insulator Transition (MIT) at 340 K, attracting considerable interest for its intrinsic properties and its potential
