Density functional theory (DFT) study of BaScO3H0.5 compound and its hydrogen storage properties

Gencer, Ayşenur
Surucu, Gokhan
BaScO3 and its hydride BaScO3H0.5 have been investigated using density functional theory (DFT) with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA). BaScO3 perovskite can crystallize in five possible crystal structures: orthorhombic (Pnma), tetragonal (P4mm), rhombohedral (R-3c), hexagonal (P63/mmc), and cubic (Pm-3m). These five possible phases have been optimized to obtain the most stable phase of BaScO3. The orthorhombic phase, being the most stable and having the lowest volume among the studied phases, has been considered for hydrogen bonding studies, and BaScO3H0.5 has been obtained. The electronic properties including band structure and corresponding partial density of states have been obtained for both BaScO3 and BaScO3H0.5 compounds. In addition, partial charge analysis has been performed. The calculated elastic constants have been used to obtain mechanical properties, such as bulk modulus, shear modulus, Young's modulus, and Poisson's ratio. Also, direction-dependent elastic properties have been studied in two dimensions and three dimensions. BaScO3 and BaScO3H0.5 compounds have ionic bonding and they are ductile materials. Moreover, the hydrogen storage properties of BaScO3H0.5 have been investigated and it is found that the gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity is 0.22 wt% and the hydrogen desorption temperature is determined as 1769.70 K.


Density functional theory investigation of two-dimensional dipolar fermions in a harmonic trap
Toffoli, Hande; TANATAR, BİLAL (2014-08-13)
We investigate the behavior of polarized dipolar fermions in a two-dimensional harmonic trap in the framework of the density functional theory (DFT) formalism using the local density approximation. We treat only a few particles interacting moderately. Important results were deduced concerning key characteristics of the system such as total energy and particle density. Our results indicate that, at variance with Coulombic systems, the exchangecorrelation component was found to provide a large contribution to...
Dirichlet extremum problem associated with the asymmetric grain-boundary thermal grooving under the Dirac delta-type anisotropic surface stiffness in bicrystal thin solid films
Ogurtani, Tarik Omer (AIP Publishing, 2007-09-15)
A generalized Rayleigh-Ritz (RR) method combined with the Galerkin (RRG) functional space approximation is elaborated by using the extended and modified Laguerre functions manifold for the weak solution of the asymmetric grain-boundary thermal grooving problem with the Dirichlet boundary. This new hybrid RRG approach, which resembles the front-tracking method, reveals the fine features of the grain boundary groove-root topography (rough or faceted regions) more accurately than the previous approach under th...
Energy distribution of the universe in the Bianchi type II cosmological models
Aydogdu, O (Wiley, 2006-04-01)
Using the energy-momentum complexes of Tolman, Papapetrou and Weinberg, the total energy of the universe in Locally Rotationally Symmetric (LRS) Bianchi type II models is calculated. The total energy is found to be zero due to the matter plus field. This result supports the viewpoint of Tryon, Rosen and Albrow. (c) 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
Suppression of Excited gamma States Relative to the Ground State in Pb-Pb Collisions at root s(NN)=5.02 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-04-01)
The relative yields of gamma mesons produced in pp and Pb-Pb collisions at root s(NN) = 5.02 TeV and reconstructed via the dimuon decay channel are measured using data collected by the CMS experiment. Double ratios are formed by comparing the yields of the excited states, gamma(2S) and gamma(3S), to the ground state, gamma(1S), in both Pb-Pb and pp collisions at the same center-of-mass energy. The double ratios, [gamma(nS)/gamma(1S)](Pb-Pb)/[gamma(nS)/gamma(1S)](PP), are measured to be 0.308 +/- 0.055(stat)...
Approximate solution to the time-dependent Kratzer plus screened Coulomb potential in the Feinberg-Horodecki equation
Farout, Mahmoud; Sever, Ramazan; Ikhdair, Sameer M. (IOP Publishing, 2020-06-01)
We obtain the quantized momentum eigenvalues P-n together with space-like coherent eigenstates for the space-like counterpart of the Schrodinger equation, the Feinberg-Horodecki equation, with a combined Kratzer potential plus screened coulomb potential which is constructed by temporal counterpart of the spatial form of these potentials. The present work is illustrated with two special cases of the general form: the time-dependent modified Kratzer potential and the time-dependent screened Coulomb potential.
