Synopsis

With VO2, a classic strongly correlated oxide material, a model semiconductor CdS is stretched and its electron-lattice interaction in a nonlinear manner is modulated. Optical spectroscopy is applied to probe the electronic band structure-associated parameters which is explained by the theoretical prediction based on k·p method and microscopy study. The research provides a new avenue on dynamic straining engineering.
