Abstract:AbstractAC conductivity experiments, or Impedance Spectroscopy, at temperatures between 100 and 400°C, made on 8 mole % Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (8YSZ) with different grain sizes, are presented. The results are analyzed using Effective Media Theories, the Brick Layer Model and percolation theory. The results obtained are satisfactory, only if the measured frequency dependant complex conductivity parameters of the grains are inserted in the equations.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
