Abstract

Low temperature conductivity mechanisms are identified in acceptor doped SrTiO3 single crystals quenched from high temperatures under reducing conditions. Impedance spectroscopy measurements on samples of the prototypical perovskite structure doped with iron provides a framework for creating a complete conductivity model for a well-defined point defect system. Dominant conductivity mechanisms are identified in the room temperature range as being controlled by oxygen vacancy ionic hopping. The activation energy for oxygen vacancy migration, an often debated value in the perovskite community, is determined to lie within the range of ~0.6- 0.75eV.
