Topics in Applied Physics is a well-established series of review books, each of which presents a comprehensive survey of a selected topic within the area of applied physics. Edited and written by leading research scientists in the field concerned, each volume contains review contributions covering the various aspects of the topic. Together these provide an(More)
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations have been performed to study the dynamics near the glass transition regime of molecular ions in ionic liquids. The glass transition temperature in the simulated 1-ethyl-3-methyl imidazolium nitrate (EMIM-NO(3)) system was determined by plotting density against temperatures. The dynamics at several temperatures in the(More)
Mixing effects have been investigated from molecular dynamics simulations at constant number of particles, volume, and temperature on the Kob-Andersen glass-forming Lennard-Jones atomic mixture A(x)B(1-x) for 0 < or = x < or = 1 compositions. Upon cooling, crystallization is observed for x < or = 0.5 and x > or = 0.9 compositions. The crystalline states can(More)
When more than two kinds of mobile ions are mixed in ionic conducting glasses and crystals, there is a non-linear decrease of the transport coefficients of either type of ion. This phenomenon is known as the mixed mobile ion effect or Mixed Alkali Effect (MAE), and remains an unsolved problem. We use molecular dynamics simulation to study the complex ion(More)
We present several characteristics of ionic motion in glassy ionic conductors brought out by time series analysis of molecular dynamics (MD) simulation data. Time series analysis of data obtained by MD simulation can provide crucial information to describe, understand and predict the dynamics in many systems. The data have been treated by the singular(More)
Molecular dynamics simulations have been performed to study the complex and heterogeneous dynamics of ions in ionic liquids. The dynamics of cations and anions in 1-ethyl-3-methyl imidazolium nitrate (EMIM-NO(3)) are characterized by van Hove functions and the corresponding intermediate scattering functions F(s)(k,t) and elucidated by the trajectories(More)
At sufficiently high frequency and low temperature, the dielectric responses of glassy, crystalline, and molten ionic conductors all invariably exhibit nearly constant loss. This ubiquitous characteristic occurs in the short-time regime when the ions are still caged, indicating that it could be a determining factor of the mobility of the ions in conduction(More)
Molecular dynamics simulations of lithium metasilicate (Li2SiO3) glass have been performed. Dynamic heterogeneity of lithium ions has been examined in detail over 4 ns at 700 K. Type A particles show slow dynamics in accordance with a long tail of waiting time distribution of jump motion and localized jumps within neighboring sites (fracton), while type B(More)
The relaxation dynamics of a complex interacting system can be drastically changed when mixing with another component having different dynamics. In this work, we elucidate the effect of the less mobile guest ions on the dynamics of the more mobile host ions in mixed alkali glasses by molecular-dynamics (MD) simulations. One MD simulation was carried out on(More)
Experimentally, superpositioning of dynamic properties such as viscosity, relaxation times, or diffusion coefficients under different conditions of temperature T, pressure P, and volume V by the scaling variable TV(gamma) (where gamma is a material constant) has been reported as a general feature of many kinds of glass-forming materials. In the present(More)
