The prime subject of the e-book is complexity in quantum dynamics. This factor is addressed via comparability with the classical ergodic, info and algorithmic complexity theories. Of specific significance is the suggestion of Kolmogorov-Sinai dynamical entropy and of its inequivalent quantum extensions formulated through Connes, Narnhofer and Thirring on one hand and Alicki and Fannes at the different.

The current collector. (c) Capacitive behavior can be observed as loops or arcs in the Nyquist-plot. 2. : Nyquist-plot for an electrochemical impedance spectroscopy of a zinc air battery stack. The general shape of the curve is given by Ma et al. [38] and reproduced with their data in this figure. mass transport of ions in the electrolyte. These processes might also overlay and both contribute to the shape of an arc in the Nyquist-plot. In ZABs, the arcs in the Nyquist-plot for low frequencies might also be influenced by processes with different time constants: The diffusion of oxygen through the GDL into the reaction zone at the CL, and the diffusion of OH – in the liquid electrolyte through the porous zinc electrode.

The stored chemical energy in the zinc particles is converted in ZABs directly to electrical energy without intermediate steps of thermal and mechanical energy conversion by electrochemically separating the overall reaction into two parts, an oxidation and a reduction reaction. 1: Solid zinc particles (Zn) and hydroxide ions (OH – ) are electrochemically converted to zincate ions (Zn(OH)42 – ), which then precipitate to solid zinc oxide (ZnO), water (H2 O), and OH – at the zinc electrode. At the air electrode, oxygen (O2 ) and H2 O are electrochemically converted to OH – .

3, with the following scenarios: • (a) Reference Scenario, • (b) Relative Humidity Scenario, • (c) Active Operation Scenario, • (d) Carbon Dioxide Scenario, • (e) Oxygen Scenario. Each scenario is evaluated with transient simulations for constant current discharge and charge cycles, which is presented in chapter 9. g. on the cell potential, the water and electrolyte content in each electrode, and the volumes of the solid and liquid species in the electrode of the zinc air battery. The underlying approach is versatile and expandable, includes only the aforementioned reaction and transport processes for zinc air battery operation and the air-composition impact on them.
