Hyperfine interactions probed at different nuclei of implanted ions (acting as dopants) in vanadiumoxides (VO2 and V2O5) will be measured in order to understand, along with first-principlescalculations, the doping phenomenology at the nanoscopic scale and its consequence on the electric and magnetic properties of the host oxides. Vanadium oxides are particularly attractive due to the phase transitions and to the capacity of the vanadium ion to change its oxidation state, being such properties well adequate for applications on, e.g., chemical sensors, electrochemical energy storagevia the intercalation of Li-ions, catalytic and optoelectronic devices. At ISOLDE-CERN we will study the effects of the incorporation of selected dopants (Cd, In, Sn) using the radioactive nucleartechnique Perturbed Angular Correlations (PAC). Measurements will be performed as a function oftemperature to study the annealing of implantation defects and the dopant incorporation andstability, particularly probing its electronic configuration while interacting. This project is part of a larger and synergetic collaboration using a multitude of characterization techniques, where we specific aim unique local information that can be used to optimize doping device.
