Douglas Temple

Douglas joined the group during his undergraduate studies doing two summer projects investigating the properties of copper chalcogenide materials (CuXCh2 and Cu3XCh3) for optoelectronic applications. His Senior Sophister project was a computational study of the reducibility of low-index ceria surfaces when doped with zinc or copper. He received an Irish Research Council scholarship for investigating the properties of interfaces in Transparent Conducting Oxides. Separate to this he has worked with the DIPPIM potential, using it for generating forcefields, and developing and extending the model to look at higher-order properties. He has implemented the potential, up to the Hessian level, in METADISE with the aim of examining elastic properties of materials using DIPPIM. Separately he is also investigating the oxide-ion diffusion properties in various Bismuth-containing oxide materials using ab initio molecular dynamics.
