Microstructure and Property Study of La2Mo1.5W0.5O9/Ag Composites
Based on the oxygen ion conductor La2Mo1.5W0.5O9, a series of Ag2O doped samples La2Mo1.5W0.5O9/Ag were prepared with conventional solid-state reaction method. The effects of Ag2O doping on the microstructure and electrical conductivity have been investigated by XRD, FESEM and direct current conductivity measurements. With the increase of Ag2O doping, the grain was further refined and compacted, meanwhile, Ag diffusion distribution in the form of second-phase appear at grain boundary. The sample density and conductivity also gradually increased with the increasing of doping amount. The conductivity of the composite specimen La2Mo1.5W0.5O9 /Ag has a great enhancement when the concentration of Ag2O is around 27 wt%, which is eight times higher than that of the single-phase sample.
