Original Paper


For the study of transport properties of a nano-composite material, an open circuit condition of current is considered, where the sum of diffusion current density, displacement current density, ohmic current density, and excess charge current density is vanished. Including the effects of drift and trapping of ions, drift and trapping diffusion coefficients are modeled respectively and the significance of the type of ionic motion in the study of ionic diffusion is discussed.
