  • The compound Na{sub 5}Li{sub 3}Ti{sub 2}S{sub 8} has been synthesized by the reaction of Ti with a Na/Li/S flux at 723 K. Na{sub 5}Li{sub 3}Ti{sub 2}S{sub 8} crystallizes in a new structure type with four formula units in space group C2/c of the monoclinic system. The structure contains three crystallographically independent Na{sup +} cations and two crystallographically independent Li{sup +} cations. Na{sub 5}Li{sub 3}Ti{sub 2}S{sub 8} possesses a channel structure that features two-dimensional {sub {infinity}}{sup 2}[LiTiS{sub 4}{sup 3-}] layers built from Li(1)S{sub 4} and TiS{sub 4} tetrahedra. The layers, which are stacked along c, comprise eight-membered rings and sixteen-membered rings.more » Na(3){sup +} cations are located between the eight-membered rings and Na(1){sup +}, Na(2){sup +}, and Li(2){sup +} cations are located between the sixteen-membered rings. These cations are each octahedrally coordinated by six S{sup 2-} anions. The ionic conductivity {sigma}{sub T} of Na{sub 5}Li{sub 3}Ti{sub 2}S{sub 8} ranges from 8.8x10{sup -6} S/cm at 303 K to 3.8x10{sup -4} S/cm at 483 K. The activation energy E{sub a} is 0.40 eV. - Graphical abstract: The structure of Na{sub 5}Li{sub 3}Ti{sub 2}S{sub 8} viewed down [010]. For the sake of clarity, the Na-S and Li(2)-S interactions are omitted.« less
  • This paper examines electrical transport properties and Li doping in SnO 2 synthesized by the sol–gel method. Solid-state 7Li-NMR lineshapes reveal that Li ions occupy two distinct sites with differing dynamic mobilities. The chemical exchange rate between the two sites is, however, too slow for detection on the NMR timescale. Compressed nanoparticulate films of this doped semiconductor exhibit a positive Seebeck coefficient implying a p-type conductivity. A variable-temperature direct current conductivity, over a 25–350 °C temperature range, follows an Efros–Shklovskii variable range hopping (ES-VRH) conduction mechanism (ln(ρ) versus T -1/2) at temperatures below 100 °C with a crossover to 2Dmore » Mott variable range hopping (M-VRH) (ln(ρ) versus T -1/3) conduction at temperatures above 250 °C. In a transition region between these two limiting behaviors, the dc resistivity exhibits an anomalous temperature-independent plateau. We suggest that its origin may lie in a carrier inversion phenomenon wherein the majority carriers switch from holes to electrons due to Li ion expulsion from the crystalline core and creation of oxygen vacancies generated by loss of oxygen at elevated temperatures.« less
  • The study of the Na/sub 3/PO/sub 4/-Na/sub 2/SO/sub 4/ system at 1050/sup 0/C has proved the existence of the solid solution Na /sub 3-x/ P /sub 1-x/ S /sub x/ O/sub 4/ (0 < x < 0.58) for which the cubic symmetry (Li/sub 3/Bi-type structure) of the ''high temperature'' form ..gamma..-Na/sub 3/PO/sub 4/ is maintained. The room temperature variation of the parameter of the unit cell as a function of doping level and the homogeneity range are discussed. The replacement of PO/sup 3 -//sub 4/ ions by SO/sup 2 -//sub 4/ ions in Na /sub 3-x/ P /sub 1-x/ Smore » /sub x/ O/sub 4/ leads to better ionic conductivity. The results are explained on the bases of structural and size considerations. A conduction mechanism is proposed.« less
  • Transition metal - free - ferromagnetism in diluted magnetic semiconductors (DMS) is of much current interest in the search for more efficient DMS materials for spintronic applications. Here, we report the results of our first principles density functional theory (DFT) study on impurity - induced ferromagnetism in non-magnetic SnO{sub 2} by a non-magnetic impurity. The impurities considered are sp-type of group 1A and 2A elements X (X = Li, Na, K, Be, Mg, Ca). Even a single atom of the group 1A elements makes the system magnetic, whereas for the group 2A elements Ca and Mg, a higher doping ismore » required to induce ferromagnetism. For all the elements studied, the magnetic moment appears to increase with the doping concentration, at least at certain impurity separations, which is a positive indicator for practical applications.« less
