Abstract

A composite solid state electrochemical device, with (Gd1-xCax)2Ti2O7 serving as the electrolyte and Gd2(Ti1-xMox)2O7 (GT-Mo) as the anode has recently been proposed. The latter exhibits high levels of mixed conduction under reducing atmospheres, but decomposes at high Po2. We have recently succeeded in extending the stability limits of the GT-Mo to higher Po2 with the addition of Mn. In this study, we report on the conductivity and stability of Gd2((Mo13Mn2/3)xTi1-x)207 (GMMT) as a function of Po2, T, and composition utilizing impedance spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction. The addition of Mn extends the stability region of the material to Po2 = 1 atm with little change in the magnitude of the conductivity. Defect models explaining the dependence of the conductivity on oxygen partial pressure are presented. Preliminary results from the use of an electronic blocking sandwich cell used to isolate the ionic conductivity of GMMT are also presented.
