A.c. impedance studies on sodiumβ-alumina tubes as used in the sodium/sulphur cell have been made at ambient temperature. It was not found possible to obtain satisfactory impedance spectra from complete tubes. However, polished annulets cut from the tubes and prepared with sputtered gold blocking electrodes were found to give reliable impedance spectra.
