|Abstract:||We present the ab initio study of different phases of Nb12O29, which has been done in the framework of density functional theory using the onsite Hubbard-U correction applied to the Nb-d states. We vary the U parameter in between 0 and 7 eV and suggest U = 3.7 – 5.0 eV to be most appropriate for the description of Nb12O29. We show that one cannot get any adequate description of this oxide using the crystallographic unit cell but at least 3 times larger supercell is needed increased along the shortest lattice parameter b to accommodate lattice distortions associated with polaron formation. Our results obtained for the enlarged cells show the possibility of simultaneous co-existence of localized states (polaron formation) and delocalized states providing metal-like properties of Nb12O29, in qualitative agreement with available experimental data.|
