First-Principles Thermodynamics of ZrO2 at a Hybrid Level Using a Machine-Learned Potential — •Emre Ahmetcik, Angelo Ziletti, Matthias Scheffler, Christian Carbogno, and Luca M. Ghiringhelli — Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, 14195 Berlin-Dahlem, Germany

Due to their outstanding electronic and thermal properties, zirconia-based materials are used in a wide range of industrial applications, e.g., as catalyst support, as ionic conductor, and as thermal barrier coating [1]. Computational studies of its thermodynamic properties have hitherto relied on LDA/GGA-type functionals. However, it is well known that the exchange-correlation functional significantly affects the outcome of the calculations for this material [2]. We overcome this limitation by building a machine-learned Gaussian Approximation Potential [3] from a small number of first-principles calculations performed with a hybrid exchange-correlation functional. This allows us to simulate the dynamics of zirconia in supercells containing several hundreds of atoms and for several nanoseconds. By this means, we are able to obtain the phase diagram of ZrO2 and to understand the mechanism that drive the monoclinic-tetragonal phase-transition.
