Charge transfer insulators
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
Charge transfer insulators are a class of materials predicted to be conductors following conventional band theory, but which are in fact insulators due to a charge transfer process. Unlike Mott insulators, where the insulating properties arise from electrons hopping between unit cells, the electrons in charge transfer insulators move between atoms within the unit cell.
