Epitaxial thin films of materials used in solid state ionics like Yttrium Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ), Rare Earth Oxides (REO) are suitable systems to study the interfacial ion transport. YSZ is an efficient oxygen ion conductor, vacancy present are responsible for ionic transport. By altering the structure we can increase the ionic conductivity. An attempt was made to computationally mock the sputtering process and deposit these films and study the diffusion of the adatom on the surface. There exists a strong interaction of the ions formed in the plasma during the sputtering process
