Cerium Dioxide-Based High Temperature Heaters for Operation in Air

  • F. A. AkopovEmail author

The paper discusses a possibility of developing cerium dioxide-based electric heaters for operation in air within the temperature range of 300 – 2500 K. The effect of various factors on electrical conductivity of CeO2 has been investigated. The main physical, chemical, and ceramic properties of the ceramics were established.
