      Among the family of correlated electron systems, vanadium sesquioxide V2O3 has undergone a remarkable career. Its isostructural metal–insulator transition upon doping with Cr is the textbook example of a Mott–Hubbard transition between a paramagnetic metal and a paramagnetic insulator. However, after first theoretical interpretations with very simple models it became clear that the physics of V2O3 were deeper than anticipated. Specifically, orbital degrees of freedom and their coupling to the lattice are key elements to understand the material close to the above mentioned transition. In their Feature Article on pp. 1251–1264, Hansmann et al. review recent progress in experimental and theoretical understanding of V2O3 featuring specially resolved spectroscopic images. The cover picture shows the material close to the transition where metallic clouds (red) have already condensed in the insulating “sky”.

      Back Cover: Nonmagnetic impurity chemistry substitution effects in zigzag silicon carbide nanoribbons (Phys. Status Solidi B 7/2013)

      Ping Lou

      Version of Record online: 5 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201370547

      Silicon carbide (SiC) is a material with outstanding physical and mechanical properties, making it a leading material for components and devices operating at high temperature, high power and under harsh environments. Moreover, various lower-dimensional SiC structures, such as one-dimensional SiC nanotubes and nanowires have been synthesized, which has stimulated a lot of studies. In recent years, the graphene-like SiC structure, i.e. the possible material of two-dimensional single-atom-thick hexagonal sheets, has been investigated theoretically, and SiC nanoribbons are made by cutting SiC graphene-like sheets just like the graphene nanoribbons. Under first-principles computations, Ping Lou (pp. 1265–1277) systematically examines the electronic and magnetic structures, as well as the structural and electronic spin-transport properties, of zigzag SiC nanoribbons (ZSiC NRs) containing one isolated nonmagnetic impurity atom at different doping sites. It was found that without an applied electric field the ZSiC NRs can be tuned to be magnetic semiconducting, magnetic half-metallic, as well as magnetic metallic by controlling the doping position. Most of them have 100% spin transport polarization around the Fermi level and exhibit spin filtering behavior.

      Mott–Hubbard transition in V2O3 revisited (pages 1251–1264)

      P. Hansmann, A. Toschi, G. Sangiovanni, T. Saha-Dasgupta, S. Lupi, M. Marsi and K. Held

      In this Feature Article, Hansmann et al. review recent calculations and experiments which shed a new light on the famous Mott–Hubbard transition in V2O3. Old paradigms, such as the pressure-doping equivalence need to be changed. The picture shows that, on the microscale, “metallic” Cr-doped V2O3 is actually phase separated into metallic islands (red) intermixed with insulating regions (blue).
