Abstract: In order to reproduce the observed ionic conductivities and activation energies computationally, the potential parameters (PMs) were optimized for classical molecular dynamic simulations on Li ion conduction in the A-site deficient perovskite solid solution La056Li0.33TiO3 with disordered A-site ion arrangement. By the use of the optimized PMs, the conductivities and the activation energies were improved considerably from 4.1×10-3 Scm-1 to 4.4×10-2 Scm-1 at 800 K and 0.02 eV to 0.2 eV, respectively. The pair correlation functions calculated with the optimized PMs reveal that the Li-ions are located somewhat broadly mainly in the vicinity of the midpoint between the center of the A-site and the center of the bottleneck formed by four O2-, and that the simulated Li location is significantly related to the conductivity.

Abstract: The locations and local environments of the Li ions in La0.56Li0.33TiO3 have been investigated by classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and first-principles (FP) calculations. The pair correlation functions of Li-O and Li-Ti indicate that the Li ions are located somewhat broadly mainly in the vicinity of the midpoint between the center of the A-site and the center of the bottleneck formed by four O2-. This is consistent well with that suggested from previous neutron diffraction and 6Li-NMR studies. The FP calculations suggest a different location of the Li ion in the vicinity of the midpoint between the centers of two adjcent bottlenecks; however it coincides with one of the locations shown by the trajectories simulated with the MD calculations.
