At ambient conditions, rare-earth oxyhydride thin films show reversible photochromism and photoconductivity, while their mechanism and relation are still unclear. In this work, this question is explored with in situ time-resolved measurements of both optical and transport properties of Gd-based oxyhydride thin films. It is found that p-type...

Photochromism has been reported for several rare-earth (RE) metal oxyhydride thin films and is characterized by a reversible darkening of the sample when exposed to light with energy greater than its optical bandgap. Here, we extend the range of known photochromic RE-oxyhydrides to include samarium oxyhydrides. These SmH3−2xOx thin films are...

Rare earth oxyhydrides REO<sub>x</sub>H<sub>(3-2x)</sub>, with RE = Y, Sc, or Gd and a cationic FCC lattice, are reversibly photochromic in nature. It is known that structural details and anion (O<sup>2-</sup>:H<sup>-</sup>) composition dictate the efficiency of the photochromic behavior. The mechanism behind the photochromism is, however,...

Accurate, cost-efficient, and safe hydrogen sensors will play a key role in the future hydrogen economy. Optical hydrogen sensors based on metal hydrides are attractive owing to their small size and costs and the fact that they are intrinsically safe. These sensors rely on suitable sensing materials, of which the optical properties change...

Rare-earth (RE) oxyhydride thin films show a color-neutral, reversible photochromic effect at ambient conditions. The origin of the photochromism is the topic of current investigations. Here, we investigated the lattice defects, electronic structure, and crystal structure of photochromic YHxOy and GdHxOy thin films deposited by magnetron...

In this paper, we investigate by ab initio DFT how the O:H ratio influences the formation and lattice energy, metastability, and optical properties of Y and La anion-disordered ROxH3-2x oxyhydrides. To achieve this, a set of special quasirandom structures (SQS) is introduced to model anion-disorder along the whole RH3-R2O3 composition line. A...

To develop an understanding of the photochromic effect in rare-earth metal oxyhydride thin films (REH3-2xOx, here RE = Y), we explore the aliovalent doping of the RE cation. We prepared Ca-doped yttrium oxyhydride thin films ((CazY1-z)HxOy) by reactive magnetron cosputtering with Ca doping concentrations between 0 and 36 at. %. All of the...

The energy axes of the RBS and ERD data (contained in Figures 2a,b,d,e, and S4) were originally underestimated, and the corrected figures appear below and in the Supporting Information. The change is in the conversion from raw data to the energy scale, which was initially converted incorrectly. The rescaled x-axis does not change the data...

Finding alternative ways to tailor the electronic properties of a catalyst to actively and selectively drive reactions of interest has been a growing research topic in the field of electrochemistry. In this Letter, we investigate the tuning of the surface electronic properties of electrocatalysts via polymer modification. We show that when a...

Rare-earth oxyhydride REOxH3-2x thin films prepared by air-oxidation of reactively sputtered REH2 dihydrides show a color-neutral, reversible photochromic effect at ambient conditions. The present work shows that the O/H anion ratio, as well as the choice of the cation, allow to largely tune the extent of the optical change and its speed. The...

In many experimental investigations of thermodynamic equilibrium or kinetic properties of series of similar reactions it is found that the enthalpies and entropies derived from Van ′t Hoff or Arrhenius plots exhibit a strong linear correlation. The origin of this Enthalpy-Entropy compensation, which is strongly related to the coalescence...

Thin films of rare-earth metal oxyhydrides, such as yttrium oxyhydrides (YH3-2xOx), show a photochromic effect where the transparency of the films decreases reversibly upon exposure to UV light. However, the exact mechanism behind this effect is unknown. In this paper, we describe the behavior of YH3-2xOx thin films, with different O2-:H-...

Metal hydrides may play a paramount role in a future hydrogen economy. While most applications are based on nanostructured and confined materials, studies considering the structural response of these materials to hydrogen concentrate on bulk material. Here, using in situ in- and out-of-plane X-ray diffraction and reflectometry, we study the fcc ...

Thin films of rare earth metal oxyhydrides show a photochromic effect, the precise mechanism of which is yet unknown. Here, we made thin films of NdH3-2xOx and show that we can change the band gap, crystal structure, and photochromic contrast by tuning the composition (O2-:H-) via the sputtering deposition pressure. To protect these films...

Doppler broadening positron annihilation spectroscopy depth profiles were collected on photochromic YO<sub>x</sub>H<sub>y</sub> thin films. In situ UV illumination of photochromic semiconductor YO<sub>x</sub>H<sub>y</sub> films leads to an increase in S-parameter and a large reduction in W-parameter, possibly caused by a change in the charge...

Rare-earth (RE) oxyhydride thin films prepared by reactive magnetron sputtering followed by air-oxidation show a color-neutral photochromic effect at ambient conditions within a wide composition range (REOxH3-2x where 0.5 ≤ x &lt; 1.5). Due to the high degree of anion sublattice disorder present in these thin films, the structure models...

Enthalpy-entropy compensation (EEC) is very often encountered in chemistry, biology and physics. Its origin is widely discussed since it would allow, for example, a very accurate tuning of the thermodynamic properties as a function of the reactants. However, EEC is often discarded as a statistical artefact, especially when only a limited...

Thin films of rare-earth (RE)-oxygen-hydrogen compounds prepared by reactive magnetron sputtering show a unique color-neutral photochromic effect at ambient conditions.
