Statics and Dynamics of Lattice Gas Models

Part of the Topics in Current Physics book series (TCPHY, volume 15)


Superionic conductors are characterized by an almost liquid-like mobility of one of the constituent ion species. The simplest theoretical concept of particle mobility in such a system is based on Brownian motion of particles in a periodic potential. Within this picture it is possible to identify two limiting cases:
  1. (i)

    Barrier height large compared with kBT and not too large damping of the particle oscillations. For this case standard free rate theory applies and the dc conductivity is thermally activated.
