• B-site cation inter-diffusion in yttrium substituted barium zirconate 

      Hasle, Ida; Waldow, Stephan P.; Gries, Ute N.; De Souza, Roger A.; Vøllestad, Einar; Haugsrud, Reidar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      B-site cation inter-diffusion in the ABO3 perovskite yttrium-substituted barium zirconate (BZY) was studied at temperatures from 1100 to 1460 °C under reducing and oxidising conditions. The experiments followed two different ...
    • Electrochemically driven degradation of chemical solution deposited ferroelectric thin-films in humid ambient 

      Dahl-Hansen, Runar Plunnecke; Polfus, Jonathan Marc; Vøllestad, Einar; Akkopru-Akgun, Betul; Denis, Lyndsey; Coleman, Kathleen; Tyholdt, Frode; Trolier-Mckinstry, Susan E; Tybell, Per Thomas Martin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The ambient humidity significantly accelerates the degradation of lead zirconate titanate (PZT) films in microelectromechanical systems; the cause of such degradation is under debate. Here, it is shown that the degradation ...
    • Hydrogen from wet air and sunlight in a tandem photoelectrochemical cell 

      Xu, Kaiqi; Chatzitakis, Athanasios Eleftherios; Vøllestad, Einar; Ruan, Qiushi; Tang, Junwang; Norby, Truls Eivind (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      A solid-state photoelectrochemical (SSPEC) cell is an attractive approach for solar water splitting, especially when it comes to monolithic device design. In a SSPEC cell the electrodes distance is minimized, while the use ...
    • Mixed proton and electron conducting double perovskite anodes for stable and efficient tubular proton ceramic electrolysers 

      Vøllestad, Einar; Strandbakke, Ragnar; Tarach, Mateusz; Catalán-Martinez, David; Fontaine, Marie-Laure; Beeaff, Dustin; Clark, Daniel Ryan; Serra, José M.; Norby, Truls Eivind (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Hydrogen production from water electrolysis is a key enabling energy storage technology for the large-scale deployment of intermittent renewable energy sources. Proton ceramic electrolysers (PCEs) can produce dry pressurized ...
    • On the mechanism of Mn(II)-doping in Scandia stabilized zirconia electrolytes 

      Vøllestad, Einar; Øygarden, Vegar; Graff, Joachim Seland; Sunding, Martin Fleissner; Pietras, John D.; Polfus, Jonathan M.; Fontaine, Marie-Laure (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Cubic Scandia-stabilized zirconia (ScSZ) is an attractive electrolyte material for solid oxide cells due to its significant ionic conductivity, provided that the phase transition to its rhombohedral polymorph upon cooling ...
