Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "The concentration of O vacancies measured on the undoped system (6.3 +/- 2.6%) matches the expected value given the typical Ce3+ content previously reported for CeO2 nanoparticles. The doped nanoparticles have an uneven distribution of dopant atoms and an atypical amount of O vacant sites (37.7 +/- 4.1%)."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The measured decrease of the O content induced by Gd doping cannot be explained solely by the charge balance including Ce3+ and Gd3+ ions."
