In the work, mobilities of oxygen and protons are determined for F– substituted solid solutions based on brownmillerite Ba2In2O5 and their concentration dependences are analyzed. It is found that small additives of the more mobile anion (F– ions) promote an increase in oxygen mobility as a result of additional effects of repulsion of ions of different nature in the anion sublattice. Mobility of oxygen at high fluoride con centrations decreases due to the overlapping of migration paths of diffusion, as both anions, fluoride ions and oxygen ions, move via oxygen vacancies. Concentration dependences of mobility of proton carriers have a similar character, which is related to the effect of the oxygen sublattice. The anion doping method used in the work can be recommended as the general method for improvement of the transport characteristics of oxy gen–ionic and protonic conductors with a perovskite–like structure.
