Disentangling Structural and Electronic Properties in V2O3 Thin Films: A Genuine Nonsymmetry Breaking Mott Transition.

Phase transitions are key in determining and controlling the quantum properties of correlated materials. Here, by using the combination of material synthesis and photoelectron spectroscopy, we

Influence of Orbital Character on the Ground State Electronic Properties in the van Der Waals Transition Metal Iodides VI3 and CrI3

Two-dimensional van der Waals magnetic semiconductors display emergent chemical and physical properties and hold promise for novel optical, electronic and magnetic “few-layers” functionalities.



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 been

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.

The magnetic origin of the metal-insulator transition in V2O3: Mott meets Slater

Despite decades of experimental and theoretical efforts, the origin of metal-insulator transitions (MIT) in strongly-correlated materials is one of the main longstanding problems in condensed matter

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) thin

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 values

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.

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, we

Artificial quantum confinement in LaAlO3/SrTiO3 heterostructures

Heterostructures of transition metal oxides (TMO) perovskites represent an ideal platform to explore exotic phenomena involving the complex interplay between the spin, charge, orbital and lattice
