Diffusion Kinetics Analysis of Cation Diffusion in YSZ and LSGM
In this paper, we discuss different possible cation diffusion mechanisms in YSZ and LSGM. Monte Carlo simulations are also reported of tracer diffusivities in LSGM for a postulated cluster mechanism. These simulations extend earlier simulations on un-doped material. The limits of the ratio of the diffusivities are consistent with experimental tracer diffusion findings over a wide range of cation-vacancy exchange frequencies. We also develop relationships between the phenomenological coefficients and use these relationships to predict possible demixing and interdiffusion experimental outcomes.
