Abstract

Recently, a subclass of binary perovskite-structured metal trioxides, such as WO3 and MoO3, have been propounded for many key optoelectronic applications due to their proper band edge positions and appropriate band gap sizes. Unlike their superclass perovskites, the structure-property relationship for these binary metal trioxides is less apparent, given that they suffer from much larger structural deformities within the octahedra. In this work, by using first-principles density-functional theory calculations and atomistic scale models, we examine the internal and external distortions of WO3 and MoO3 polymorphs. We then compare our results with conventional polyhedral distortion descriptors and finally use a refined data set of different perovskite-structured oxides to establish and demonstrate how these binary metal trioxides operate with a different structure-property relationship from the conventional oxide perovskites.
