Our recent work on “Mechanistic insights of enhanced spin polaron conduction in CuO through atomic doping” has been accepted in npj Computational Materials! Congratulations to Tyler, Feng, and Prof. Ping! The formation of a “spin polaron” (SP) stems from strong spin-charge-lattice interactions in magnetic oxides, which leads to a localization of carriers accompanied by local magnetic...
