Abstract
Ceramic electrolytes formed by Bi (4 mol%)-doped 8YSZ, i.e., Y2O3 (8 mol%)-doped ZrO2, were synthesized by a simple co-precipitation route, using ammonia solution as precipitating agent. The amorphous as-synthesized powders convert into zirconia-based single phase with fluorite structure through a mild calcination step at 500 °C. The calcined powders were sintered at very low temperatures (i.e., 900– 1100 °C) achieving in both cases very high values of relative densities (i.e., >95%); the corresponding microstructures were highly homogeneous and characterized by micrometric grains or sub-micrometric grains for sintering at 1100 °C and 900 °C, respectively. Very interesting electrochemical properties were determined by Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) in the best samples. In particular, their total ionic conductivity, recorded at 650 °C, are 6.06 ×10− 2 S/cm and 4.44 ×10− 2 S/cm for Bi (4 mol%)-doped 8YSZ sintered at 1100 °C and 900 °C, respectively. Therefore, Bi was proved to be an excellent sintering aid dopant for YSZ, highly improving its densification at lower temperatures while increasing its total ionic conductivity.
