We have fabricated transition metal oxide (TMO) films on n-type titanium oxide substrates, and measured in-plane resistance under ultraviolet light irradiation. A dramatic decrease in the resistance and enhancement of the superconducting critical temperature are observed for VO2/TiO 2:Nb and YBa2Cu3Oz/SrTiO 3:Nb, respectively. Out-of-plane voltage measurements under light irradiation indicate hole-carrier injection from the substrate to the film in both the cases. The present photocarrier injection technique could apply to many TMOs to control the hole carrier density externally.
