Three rare earth zirconates (Sm2Zr2O7, Gd2Zr2O7 and Er2Zr2O7) were prepared by solid state reaction. The crystal structure and ionic conductivity of these zirconates were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and complex impedance spectroscopy. The results show that Sm2Zr2O7 exhibits single-phase pyrochlore structure and Er2Zr2O7 exhibits single-phase fluorite structure, while Gd2Zr2O7 has pyrochlore and fluorite structure. Among three zirconates, the ionic conductivity of Sm2Zr2O7 is highest, while that of Er2Zr2O7 is lowest.
