Low Temperature Electrolytes for Solid Oxide Cells Having High Ionic Conductivity

United States Patent Application

View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Methods for forming a metal oxide electrolyte improve ionic conductivity. Some of those methods involve applying a first metal compound to a substrate, converting that metal compound to a metal oxide, applying a different metal compound to the metal oxide, and converting the different metal compound to form a second metal oxide. Electrolytes so formed can be used in solid oxide fuel cells, electrolyzers, and sensors, among other applications.
