Correlation Factor and Nernst-Einstein Relation in Solid Electrolytes
It has been usual to resort to the value of the “correlation factor” when the mechanism of diffusion comes in question. In the area of solid electrolytes, similar efforts have been made in order to estimate the mechanism of ion transport. The main aim of this paper is to shew that this approach is not useful in the case of solid electrolytes. For the sake of simplicity, we limit our discussions here to the vacancy mechanism. However, similar arguments can be applied to any other mechanism as well.
