Na Cl Cl Na Cl Na Cl E To get across the unit cell into the vacancy the Na+ ion must hop through the center of the cube where it squeezes by 4 Cl- and 2 Na+. The energy of this "transition state" will determine the ease - Solid State Chemistry Chem 754 of migration. 3 Ion Migration (Frenkel Defects) The Frenkel defects in AgCl can migrate via two mechanisms.

Batteries e- Useful Power Fuel Cells Gas Sensors Electrolyte Anode Cathode In such cells ionic conductors are needed for either the electrodes, the electrolyte or both. Electrolyte (Material needs to be an electrical insulator to prevent short circuit) Electrode (Mixed ionic and electronic conductivity is needed to avoid open circuit) Chem 754 - Solid State Chemistry 4 Schematic of a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Chem 754 - Solid Stat...
