Lee, “Enhanced photovoltaic effects in A-site samarium doped BiFeO 3 ceramics: The roles of domain structure and electronic state,” Journal of the European Ceramic Society 36, 1149-1157 (2015). doi: 10.1016/j.jeurceramsoc.2015.12.019.en_US
dc.description.abstractThis work reports enhanced photovoltaic (PV) responses of (Bi1 − xSmx)FeO3 (x = 0.0, 0.05, 0.10) ceramics (BFO100xSm) with ITO film under near-ultraviolet irradiation (λ = 405 nm). The ceramics were characterized by micro-Raman scattering, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, and synchrotron X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). A rhombohedral R3c symmetry with tilted FeO6 octahedra has been confirmed. The Fe K-edge absorption spectra reveal a slight shift toward higher energy as A-site Sm3+ substitution increases. The oxygen K-edge XAS reveals an enhancement of hybridization between the O 2p and unoccupied Fe 3d states due to Sm doping. The optical band gaps are in the range of 2.15–2.24 eV. The maximal PV power-conversion and external quantum efficiencies respectively reach 0.37% and 4.1% in the ITO/BFO5Sm/Au heterostructure. The PV responses can be described quantitatively by a p-n-junction-like model. The domain structures and hybridization between the O 2p and Fe 3d states play important roles for the PV responses.en_US
