Figure 3

The t2g-p orbital coupling manifests itself in the overlap of their DOS. The local reference frame in the octahedral is used for projecting DOS. The DOS shown in the figure are t2g=dxy+dyz+dzx, eg=+ and p=px+py+pz. The vertical dashed lines show the position of Fermi level. The energy is aligned to the vacuum level.
