Energy Landscapes and Structure in Ion Conducting Solids

The potential energy landscape of mobile ions in solid-state materials and the atomic scale structure are intimately interrelated. This interrelation and the resultant properties, e.g. the mobility of the ions, is of paramount interest in contemporary material science with direct applications in energy storage and conversion. Understanding the interplay of structure, energy landscape and ionic transport of ionic solids is of crucial importance for a knowledge-based development of improved and new functionalities of these materials.


Key topics are
• Ion transport in amorphous, crystalline and poly-crystalline solids
• Short range versus long-range transport as seen by NMR, CAIT and IS
• Energy landscapes in ion conducting solids: site energy distribution, populated vs. unpopulated sites
• Interrelation between atomically resolved structure and energy landscapes
• Predictive methods for correlating energy landscapes to material structure and function
