Properties of YSZ Electrolyte Sintered at 1250°C


Article Preview

With the YSZ nano-powders as raw materials, the thin electrolyte film was prepared by tape calendaring, then fired by a three-step sintering method. The YSZ film sintered at 1250°C is dense with a grain size of 0.4~3μm.The electrical conductivity, up to 0.2s/cm at 1000°C, and active energy, 0.99~1ev, are nearly the same for the samples sintered at 1250°C for 10, 15 and 20 h.
