Electrical Resistivity Anomalies in SbxVyMozOt Phases
Electrical resistivity dips in the temperature range 269-287 K and n-type conductivity below 415 K for solid solutions of MoO3 in SbVO5 with general formula SbxVyMozOt are observed. The electrical resistivity anomalies are interpreted as due to conduction of small-polarons, generated here as electrons together with distortions of their associated defective oxygen lattice and/or alternatively based on the crossover of electronic or polaronic states.
