Tremendous progress has been made in understanding the defect chemistry and transport in solid-state ion conductors. These materials are attracting increasing attention for a variety of applications, most notable among these being fuel cells for power generation, production of chemicals, oxygen generation for life support systems, and high temperature electrochemical sensors. Oxygen sensors are already a widespread commercial success and many of the other solid-state ionic devices hold similar promise as their performance is improved and cost is brought down through further technical advances and mass production.
