Abstract [en]

Mean-square displacements (MSDs) and individual-ion square-displacements (ISDs) for the different constituents in Ca-doped CeO2(0 1 1) slabs at 300 K have been studied as a function of depth from the surface. Constant pressure-constant temperature MD simulations were used. The MSDs are 2-3 times larger at the surface than in the bulk, but ISDs as large as ca. 150 times the surface MSD value were observed during short-time periods for anions next to an anion vacancy at the surface. The chemical implications of this kind of motion are important, since transient structural distortions of this magnitude will lead to large electron re-distributions.
