The composite of doped lanthanum gallate (La(0.9)Sr(0.1)Ga(0.8)Mg(0.2)O(2.85), LSGM) and doped ceria (Ce(0.8)Sm(0.2)O(1.9), CSO) was investigated as an electrolyte for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). The LSGM-CSO composite was examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and impedance spectroscopy. It was found that the sintered LSGM-CSO composite contains mainly fluorite CeO(2) phase and a minority impurity phase, Sm(3)Ga(5)O(12). The LSGM-CSO composite electrolyte shows a small grain boundary response in the impedance spectroscopy as compared to LSGM and CSO pellets. The composite electrolyte exhibits the highest conductivity in the temperature range of 250-600 degrees C, compared to LSGM and CSO. The LSGM-CSO composite can be expected to be an attractive intermediate temperature electrolyte material for solid oxide fuel cells.
