Oxygen Ion Mobility And Ionic Conductivity Prediction In Cubic Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia Single Crystals

Cubic yttria-stabilized zirconia (c-YSZ) is a ceramic material which is applied in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs). There are a considerable number of vacancies in the structure of this material which makes it a great choice for the electrolyte in SOFCs. Electrolyte in SOFC should be able to transport ions but not electrons. The oxygen ions can travel through the vacancies of the material. However, the rate of oxygen ions traveling through the material, or in other words the ionic...
