Using a first-principles approach the electronic structure, defect structure, and formation energy of native point defects in Y2 O3 are studied. Vacancies, interstitials, and antisites in their relevant charge states are considered. We find that within the band gap of Y2 O3 oxygen vacancies, oxygen interstitials, yttrium vacancies, and yttrium interstitials can be stable depending on the Fermi level and external chemical potentials. When the Fermi level is constrained to be within the band gap of silicon, oxygen vacancies are the dominant defect type under low oxygen chemical potential condition. A higher oxygen chemical potential leads to oxygen interstitials and ultimately yttrium vacancies. © 2006 The American Physical Society.||Source Title:||Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/56769||ISSN:||10980121||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevB.73.104101|
