The calculations are performed with the hydrogen (or deuterium) moving in 3D across a static nickel surface using a novel Fourier interpolated potential energy surface which has been parameterized to density functional theory calculations.

N2 - We present the results of a theoretical study of H/D diffusion on a Ni(111) surface at a range of temperatures, from 250 K to 75 K. The diffusion is studied using both classical molecular dynamics and the partially adiabatic centroid molecular dynamics method. The calculations are performed with the hydrogen (or deuterium) moving in 3D across a static nickel surface using a novel Fourier interpolated potential energy surface which has been parameterized to density functional theory calculations. The results of the classical simulations are that the calculated diffusion coefficients are far too small and with too large a variation with temperature compared with experiment. By contrast, the quantum simulations are in much better agreement with experiment and show that quantum effects in the diffusion of hydrogen are significant at all temperatures studied. There is also a crossover to a quantum-dominated diffusive regime for temperatures below ∼150 K for hydrogen and ∼85 K for deuterium.
