Materials with strong electronic Coulomb correlations play an increasing role in modern materials applications. “Thermochromic” systems, which exhibit thermally induced changes in their optical response, provide a particularly interesting case. The optical switching associated with the metal-insulator transition of vanadium dioxide (VO2), for example, has been proposed for use in numerous applications, ranging from anti-laser shields to “intelligent” windows, which selectively filter radiative… CONTINUE READING
