Tweed texture revealed in vanadium dioxide in metal-insulator transitions

The study of metal-insulator transitions in VO2 through atomic scale imaging has allowed to uncover a periodical tweed structure: a weaving of vanadium dimers acting like the threads of an actual tweed at the atomic level. This research, led by ICN2 group leader ICREA Prof. Gustau Catalan and ICMAB researcher Dr Felip Sandiumenge and published in Advanced Materials, provides relevant information for the understanding of transitional states in specific classes of materials.
