    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; point defects; thermodynamic modeling; proton conductors; oxyhydrides; density-functional theory; BaZrO3; polarons; grain boundaries; space charges; oxides;

    Abstract : Oxides are versatile materials with applications in many different research fields; especially those related to clean energy technologies, such as fuel cells, batteries and solar panels. Many functional properties of these materials derive from lattice imperfections, or defects, and a lot of effort has been put into fine tuning these materials by modifying their structure on the atomic scale.
