Unformatted text preview: arrier for jumping between between neighboring sites. High activation energy decreases carrier mobility, very stable sites (deep potential energy wells) lead to carrier localization. localization. 3. The structure should have solid framework, preferable 3D, permeated by open channels. The migrating ion lattice should be "molten", so that a solid framework of the other ions is needed in order to prevent the entire material from melting. 4. The framework ions (usually anions) should be highly polarizable. polarizable. Such ions can deform to stabilize transition state geometries Chem 754 - Solid State of the migrating ion through covalent interactions. Chemistry Molten Sublattice (1/2 Melting) In the best ionic conductors one ion becomes so mobile that for all intensive purposes those ions are in a "molten" state. This behavior can be seen in part from the entropies of the observed phase transitions, where the Ag (and F respectively) sublattice melts prematurely.
