Solid State Ionics
Research within this theme encompasses the study of fast ionic and mixed ionic-electronic transport in condensed phases and associated interfacial/electrode reactions. Essential to the research is the development of a fundamental understanding of the relationships between material characteristics, such as crystal structure, composition, defect chemistry and microstructure, and material properties related to diffusion of ionic and electronic species. Main interest is focused to the fundamentals of technological applications, such as dense ceramic membranes and the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC).
