Mixed ionic-electronic conductors are widely used in devices for energy conversion and storage. Grain boundaries in these materials have nanoscale spatial dimensions, which can generate substantial resistance to ionic transport due to dopant segregation. Here, we report the concept of targeted phase formation in a Ce0.8Gd0.2O2-δ-CoFe2O4 composite that(More)
Identification of the existence of pyrocarbonate ion C2O5(2-) in molten carbonates exposed to a CO2 atmosphere provides key support for a newly established bi-ionic transport model that explains the mechanisms of high CO2 permeation flux observed in mixed oxide-ion and carbonate-ion conducting (MOCC) membranes containing highly interconnected three(More)
Samples of Gd2O3-doped CeO2 (GDC) were fabricated by sintering of powder compacts. Impedance spectra were measured from 400 C to 675 C in air by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Above w500 C, high frequency arc was not semicircular but could be fitted with a constant phase element (CPE). Abovew625 C, high frequency arc could not be resolved due(More)
Conventional Ni-BaCeO3-based membranes possess high hydrogen permeation flux but suffer serious flux degradation in CO2-containing atmosphere because of the formation of BaCO3 insulating layer. In this work, we report a novel Ni-BaZr0.1Ce0.7Y0.1Yb0.1O(3-δ) (Ni-BZCYYb) membrane, capable of both high hydrogen permeation flux and stable performance in(More)
The hollandite structure is a promising crystalline host for Cs immobilization. A series of Ga-doped hollandite BaxCsyGa2x+yTi8-2x-yO16 (x = 0, 0.667, 1.04, 1.33; y = 1.33, 0.667, 0.24, 0) was synthesized through a solid oxide reaction method resulting in a tetragonal hollandite structure (space group I4/m). The lattice parameter associated with the tunnel(More)
The microstructure and connectivity of the ionic and electronic conductive phases in composite ceramic membranes are directly related to device performance. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) including chemical mapping combined with X-ray nanotomography (XNT) have been used to characterize the composition and 3-D microstructure of a MIEC composite model(More)
A new heterostructured (La,Sr)2FeO4-δ (LSF214)-La0.8Sr0.2FeO3-δ (LSF113) electrode has been synthesized to improve the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). This new materials system was fabricated by the deposition of Sr(NO3)2 into the LSF113 framework followed by subsequent heat treatment, resulting in a new three-dimensional (3D) LSF214-LSF113(More)
