Resum

Proton-conducting solid-state electrolytes, including perovskite-type materials, hold promise for hydrogen sensor development. These sensors leverage the proton conductivity of such materials to detect hydrogen gas presence. However, achieving both high density for gas tightness and good protonic conductivity in these refractory materials can be challenging. In this study, we propose the preparation of dense pellets of BaCe0.6Zr0.3Y0.1O3-δ using ZnO as a sintering aid (BCZY-Zn). These pellets were extensively characterized using X-ray diffraction and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and compared with pellets sintered without sintering aid (BCZY). Subsequently, BCZY-Zn electrolyte was utilized to fabricate amperometric sensors for hydrogen monitoring. Finally, amperometric measurements were conducted at 500 °C while maintaining a voltage of 150 mV between electrodes. The sensors' performance was evaluated for hydrogen partial pressures ranging from 12 to 100 Pa within an argon atmosphere. Additionally, response and recovery times were calculated.
