Quick Reference

A type of metal–insulator transition in which the key parameter is the ratio of electron repulsion to bandwidth. Above a certain critical value of this parameter the metal becomes a Mott insulator, even though the uppermost band is not full. It was proposed by the physicist Sir Nevill Mott in 1949.
