  1. 1. Functional Oxide Materials exhibiting Ionic Conductivity for Future Energy Conversion Needs

    Författare :FRANCIS GACHAO KINYANJUI; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; neutron diffraction; perovskites; oxygen deficient perovskites; BaSnO3; Rietveld refinements; BaZrO3; in-situ cells; proton conduction; deuteron position; Ba3In2ZrO8;

    Sammanfattning : Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that transform the chemical energy in hydrogen and oxygen into electrical energy at high efficiencies and produce only water vapour emissions. Materials with the perovskite or fluorite structure types are commonly employed as the ion conducting ceramic electrolyte membranes in intermediate and high temperature fuel cells. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Proton Conducting Ceramics; Synthesis, Characterization and Sample Cell Environments

    Sammanfattning : Acceptor doped Perovskite ceramics have been shown to exhibit high levels of protonic conduction in humid atmospheres. However significant grain boundary resistance and long sintering times required to achieve sufficient grain size growth has hindered their widespread application as electrolyzers, fuel cells and gas separation membranes.
