Hybridization between the conduction band and 3$$d$$ orbitals in the oxide-based diluted magnetic semiconductor In$$_{2-x}$$V$$_x$$O$$_3$$

The electronic structure of In$$_{2-x}$$V$$_x$$O$$_3$$ ($$x=0.08$$) has been investigated by photoemission spectroscopy and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). The V $$2p$$ core-level photoemission and XAS spectra revealed that the V ion is in the trivalent state, which is the same valence state as that of In in In$$_2$$O$$_3$$. The V $$3d$$ partial density of states obtained by the resonant photoemission technique showed a sharp peak above the O $$2p$$ band. While the O $$1s$$ XAS spectrum of In$$_{2-x}$$V$$_x$$O$$_3$$ was similar to that of In$$_2$$O$$_3$$, there were differences in the In $$3p$$ and $$3d$$ XAS spectra between the V-doped and pure In$$_2$$O$$_3$$. The observations give clear evidence for hybridization between the In-derived conduction band and the V $$3d$$ orbitals in In$$_{2-x}$$V$$_x$$O$$_3$$.
