Title: Optical absorption and disorder in delafossites

Here, we present compelling experimental results of the optical characteristics of transparent oxide CuGaO 2 and related CuGa 1-xFe xO 2 (with 0.00 ≤ x ≤ 0.05) alloys, whereby the forbidden electronic transitions for CuGaO 2 become permissible in the presence of B-site (Ga sites) alloying with Fe. Our computational structural results imply a correlation between the global strain on the system and a decreased optical absorption edge. However, herein, we show that the relatively ordered CuGa 1-xFe xO 2 (for 0.00 ≤ x ≤ 0.04) structures exhibit much weaker vis-absorption compared to the relatively disordered CuGa 0.95Fe 0.05O 2.
