Young's modulus of Ce 0.9Gd 0.1O 2-δ (GDC) has been investigated as a function of temperature from room temperature to 1273 K and of p(O 2) from 10 -24 to 10 -2 bar by using a resonance method. It was found that the Young's modulus of GDC under oxidizing conditions gradually decreased with increasing temperature and was almost independent of p(O 2) at a constant temperature. However, under reducing conditions, it apparently decreased as p(O 2) decreased even at a constant temperature in response to the increase in the oxygen nonstoichiometry δ. Such p(O 2) and temperature dependencies of the Young's modulus can be explained by a change in the interatomic distance due to chemical and/or the thermal expansion.
