A microscopic view on the Mott transition in chromium-doped V(2)O(3).
This work unveils for the first time the MIT in Cr-doped V(2)O(3) with submicron lateral resolution: with decreasing temperature, microscopic domains become metallic and coexist with an insulating background. Expand
Evolution of the SrTiO3 surface electronic state as a function of LaAlO3 overlayer thickness
Abstract The novel electronic properties emerging at interfaces between transition metal oxides, and in particular the discovery of conductivity in heterostructures composed of LaAlO 3 (LAO) andExpand
Tuning the metal-insulator transition in NdNiO3 heterostructures via Fermi surface instability and spin fluctuations
We employed in situ pulsed laser deposition (PLD) and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) to investigate the mechanism of the metal-insulator transition (MIT) in NdNiO3 (NNO) thinExpand
Stabilization of metallic phase in V2O3 thin film
The tailoring and understanding of the metal-insulator transitions (MITs) in vanadium sesquioxide, V2O3, is of major interest for both applications and fundamental physics. V2O3 has beenExpand
Frustrated Magnetism in Mott Insulating (V 1 -x Cr x ) 2 O 3
V2O3 famously features all four combinations of paramagnetic vs antiferromagnetic, and metallic vs insulating states of matter in response to %-level doping, pressure in the GPa range, andExpand
Magnetic field frustration of the metal-insulator transition in V2O3
Despite decades of efforts, the origin of metal-insulator transitions (MITs) in strongly correlated materials remains one of the main long-standing problems in condensed-matter physics. An archetypalExpand
Tuning metal-insulator transitions in epitaxial V2O3 thin films
We present a study of the synthesis of epitaxial V2O3 films on c-plane Al2O3 substrates by reactive dc-magnetron sputtering. The results reveal a temperature window, at substantially lower valuesExpand
Charge disproportionation without charge transfer in the rare-earth-element nickelates as a possible mechanism for the metal-insulator transition.
The M-I transition may be viewed as being driven by an internal volume "collapse" where the NiO6 octahedra with two ligand holes shrink around their central Ni, while the remaining octaherra expand accordingly, resulting in the (1/2, 1/2) superstructure observed in x-ray diffraction in the insulating phase.

Spin and orbital occupation and phase transitions in V 2 O 3
Polarization dependent x-ray-absorption measurements were performed on pure and Cr-doped V 2O3 single crystals in the antiferromagnetic insulating, paramagnetic insulating, and metallic phases. TheExpand
Evidence of the metal-insulator transition in ultrathin unstrained V2O3 thin films
We report the strain state and transport properties of V2O3 layers and V2O3/Cr2O3 bilayers deposited by molecular beam epitaxy on (0001)-Al2O3. By changing the layer on top of which V2O3 is grown, weExpand
