Materials based on Cu2O are potential p-type transparent semiconducting oxides. Developing an understanding of the mechanism leading to p-type behaviour is important. An accepted origin is the formation of Cu vacancies. However, the way in which this mechanism leads to p-type properties needs to be investigated. This paper presents a first principles analysis of the origin of p-type semiconducting behaviour in Cu2O with 1.5 and 3% Cu vacancy concentrations.
