Impact of biaxial and uniaxial strain on V$_2$O$_3$

30 Sep 2019 Wickramaratne Darshana Bernstein Noam Mazin I. I.

Using first-principles calculations we determine the role of compressive and tensile uniaxial and equibiaxial strain on the structural, electronic and magnetic properties of V$_2$O$_3$. We find that compressive strain increases the energy cost to transition from the high-temperature paramagnetic metallic phase to the low-temperature antiferromagnetic insulating phase... (read more)
