Graphite electrodes for conductivity measurements on beta alumina

  • W. Baukal
  • R. Knoedler


Graphite was painted as an electrode material onto polycrystalline specimens of the solid electrolyte beta alumina for two-electrode measurements of electrolyte conductivity. Graphite turned out to be useful between room temperature and at least 600 °C giving frequency independent resistances in the range above, say, 20 kHz.
