Research Topic:

Migration energies and defect interactions play an important role in the ionic conductivity in solids. Computational methods help to predict values for the conductivity and let us understand the migration mechanisms on our way to find new materials.

  Research


The focus of my work is the investigation of migration paths und migration energies in promising oxygen ion conductors with the interstitialcy mechanism, emphasizing the correlation of stoichiometry, structure and conductivity. For this purpose, density functional theory, molecular dynamics simulations und Monte Carlo simulations are applied.




 
  Research


To complement the computational results, respective materials are synthesized, pressed and analyzed by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
