Ionic Conduction in Ceria/sodium Carbonate Nano Composite Based Electrolyte

Composite solid electrolytes (CSEs) are heterogeneous mixtures of at least two solid materials which exhibit high ionic conductivities, high stabilities (thermal and chemical) and enhanced mechanical strength [1, 2]. These unique properties make them suitable electrolyte materials for many solid-state electrochemical cells. In 1973, Liang [3] reported a remarkable enhancement of lithium iodide (LiI) ionic conductivity after adding a second phase of aluminium oxide (Al2O3). Since then, the ionic conductivities of many composite electrolytes including; halide/oxide, oxyacid salt/oxide and carbonate/oxide have been investigated. In recent years, ceria-based nanocomposites, in particular ceria-carbonate, have attracted more attention owing to their super-ionic conductivities (0.1 >S cm-1at above 300 Author(s): Ibrahim A Amar
