Abstract : A review of the properties of the two dimensional superionic conductors of the sodium beta alumina family is presented, with emphasis on the variability of properties with composition and processing. Processing methods, including methods of distributing additives, may strongly influence engineering properties of these substances through changes in microstructures. Described are common methods of measurement of properties with generally accepted ranges of property values. The need to compromise in the design of devices requiring several coincident optimal properties is, at this time, a necessary ingredient in the use of these materials as device components. (Author)
