  • The current state of polaron theory as applicable to transition metal oxides is reviewed, including problems such as impurity conduction where disorder plays a role. An estimate is given of the conditions under which polaron formation leads to an enhancement of the mass but no hopping energy. The binding energy of a polaron to a donor or acceptor in narrow-band semiconductors is discussed. The experimental evidence about the conductivity of TiO 2 and NiO is reviewed. Impurity conduction in NiO… CONTINUE READING
