  • An interdisciplinary collaboration led by Richard Robinson updated the “small polaron hopping model” to reflect different pathways for conduction in ceramics.
  • By updating the model to reflect different pathways for conduction, the team hopes its work will help researchers who are custom-tailoring the properties of metal oxides in technologies such as lithium ion batteries, fuel cells and electrocatalysis.
