Oxygen transport in oxides can take place in molecular, atomic and ionic form. An experimental method is described which separates the contributions of molecules, atoms and ions to the overall oxygen transport in oxides. The method comprises gas phase analysis and the use of oxygen isotopes O-16 and O-18. In the general case, exposure to non-equilibrated O-2 containing 60-70% O-18 is optimal to obtain the highest accuracy in the measurement. The method is exemplified by distinguishing non-ionic (molecular and atomic) oxygen transport from ionic oxygen transport in a commercial yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) sample in the temperature range of 600-900 degrees C. There is approximately 35% molecular, 20% atomic transport and 45% ionic oxygen transport in YSZ at 600 degrees C. It is found that the fraction percent of non-ionic oxygen transport decreases with increasing temperature, and ionic oxygen transport increases sharply with increasing temperature.
