Effect of electric field on migration of defects in oxides: Vacancies and interstitials in bulk MgO

(0)
Thursday, August 16, 2018 • Updates

New paper in PRB looking at effects of electric fields on defect migration in oxides. One place this is important is the gate oxides of transistors, especially modern devices with small dimensions. It is a nice collaboration with University College London and the technical university of Vienna.

Paper in Journal of Chemical Physics

(0)

New paper published in the Journal of Chemical Physics. It looks at an old problem of accurately calculating energies of charged species in an infinite (periodically repeating) crystal. The 1/r dependence of the coulomb interactions makes this non-trivial. Tom Durrant, a PhD student at UCL in Alex Shluger’s group, has done painstaking work to unify… Read More ›
