  • For the analysis of the electron structure of hematite under pressure, methods of the generalized transition state and local electron density approximation combined with the dynamical mean-field theory have been used. The transition of iron ions from the high-spin to low-spin state and the insulator-metal transition observed in Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} at high pressures have been considered. It is shown that in the low-symmetry crystal structure of Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} experimentally revealed at high pressures a low-spin metallic state is also preferable. The theoretical results obtained agree well with experimental data.
  • Band gap engineering in SrTiO3 and related titanate perovskites has long been explored due to the intriguing properties of the materials for photocatalysis and photovoltaic applications. A popular approach in the materials chemistry community is to substitutionally dope aliovalent transition metal ions onto the B site in the lattice to alter the valence band. However, in such a scheme there is limited control over the dopant valence, and compensating defects often form. Here we demonstrate a novel technique to controllably synthesize Fe2+- and Fe3+-doped SrTiO3 thin films without formation of compensating defects by co-doping with La3+ ions on the Amore » site. We stabilize Fe2+-doped films by doping with two La ions for every Fe dopant, and find that the Fe ions exhibit a low-spin electronic configuration, producing optical transitions in the near infrared regime and degenerate doping. The novel electronic states observed here offer a new avenue for band gap engineering in perovskites for photocatalytic and photovoltaic applications.« less
  • The interplay between the solid-state spin-crossover features and the structural properties is analyzed for the [Mn{sup III}(pyrol){sub 3}tren] complex on the basis of high-pressure and low-temperature single-crystal x-ray-diffraction experiments. In particular, the low-temperature (30 K, 10{sup 5} Pa) low spin crystal structure is compared to the low-temperature (60 K, 10{sup 5} Pa) high spin and to the high-pressure (293 K, 1.00 GPa) high spin crystal structures. The low-temperature structural properties show the structural modifications due to the spin crossover in a Mn(III) complex. Comparison of these structural modifications to those described for mononuclear Fe(II) spin-crossover compounds emphasizes significant differences, suchmore » as in bond length variation and polyhedron distortion, for example. Elsewhere, analysis of the high-pressure data shows that the internal stress on the metal ion is not the cause of the occurrence of the thermal spin crossover, contrary to a general belief.« less
