The Fundamental Mechanism Behind Colossal Permittivity in Oxides

Ned Taylor, Frank Davies, Shane Davies, Conor Price, and Steve Hepplestone have published an article describing the atomic-scale mechanism that gives rise to colossal permittivity within samples of CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO). This work was conducted at the University of Exeter during Ned, Frank, Shane and Conor’s PhDs. For two decades, experimental samples of CCTO have shown […]

First principles electronic and elastic properties of fresnoite Ba2TiSi2O8

Ned Taylor, Frank Davies, and Steve Hepplestone published an article detailing a theoretical study of the electronic and elastic properties of fresnoite, Ba2TiSi2O8. The work was performed during the first six months of Ned and Frank’s PhDs. This material has potential due to its large band gap, strongly anisotropic structure and a second gap directly […]
