Abstract : Charge transport by electrons and ions in ZrO2, ZrO2 + CaO, pure Cr2O3 and Cr2O3 + Al2O3 is being investigated using various experimental techniques. The development of special equipment was necessary to carry out measurements of electrical properties as a function of oxygen partial pressure. Apparatus and procedures include a furnace system, an electrical power system, an electrical measuring system, and a gas handling system calibration.
