  5. 5. Significance of grain boundaries for transport phenomena in graphene and proton-conducting barium zirconate

    Författare :Edit Ahlberg Helgee; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; graphene; density functional theory; phonons; proton conduction; grain boundaries; BaZrO3; interatomic model potentials;

    Sammanfattning : Grain boundaries can have a significant influence on the properties of polycrystalline materials. When determining the type and extent of this influence it is frequently useful to employ computational methods such as density functional theory and molecular dynamics, which can provide models of the grain boundary structure at the atomistic level.
