Tremendous progress has been made in understanding the defect chemistry and electronic and ionic conduction in many high temperature ceramics over the last four decades. Such ceramics are now attracting increasing attention for a variety of applications, notable among these being fuel cells for power generation, production of chemicals, oxygen generation for life support systems, and high temperature electrochemical sensors. Many of these applications promise to become wide-spread commercial successes in the coming years as the cost is brought down through further technical advances and mass production.
