PbO2: from semi-metal to transparent conducting oxide by defect chemistry control
WATSON, GRAEME
Lead dioxide has been studied for over 150 years as a component of the lead-acid battery. Based on first-principles calculations, we predict that by tuning the concentration ofelectrons in the material, through control of the defect chemistry, PbO 2 can be rendered from black to optically transparent, thus opening up applications in the field of optoelectronics
