In the Transition From Metal to Insulator, Missing Oxygen Atoms Matter

The ability of certain advanced materials to switch from being metallic to insulating could be useful for building next-generation electronic devices. But how can this transition be controlled? Researchers have used the Advanced Light Source to show that, in one engineered material, defects in the form of missing oxygen atoms can serve as a “tuning knob” for the metal-to-insulator transition.
