The dynamics of the doped perovskite-based high-temperature protonic conductors (HTPC) were studied by means of neutron vibrational spectroscopy (NVS) and first-principles pseudopotential supercell calculations. Vibrational spectra from hydrogen-charged samples with different rare-earth dopants revealed three well-defined vibrational bands in the energy ranges 20-60, 60-90, and 100-140 meV. The two lowest-energy bands were insensitive to the dopants. First-principles phonon calculations indicate that they are mainly associated with oxygen modes. In contrast, the high-energy band was very sensitive to the dopant, and in this case, calculations indicate that it is associated with OH bending modes.
