Abstract / Full Text

The effect of F and Cl doping on the transport properties of the proton conductor Ba4In2Zr2O11 was analyzed. The halogen-substituted phases were found to be capable of water intercalation and proton transfer. The introduction of halide ions in low concentrations led to an increase in oxygen-ion and proton conductivity.
