Oxygen isotope exchange experiments were carried out with a dense La0.6Sr0.4CoO3-δ film (0.5 μm thick) deposited on a Ce0.9Ca0.1O1.9 substrate by a laser ablation method. The isotope exchange profile was measured from the surface into the electrolyte by a secondary ion mass spectrometer (SIMS). The oxygen diffusion through the La0.6Sr0.4CoO film was fast enough not to make any observable gradient in oxygen isotope concentration inside the film. The surface isotope exchange rate, k*, was calculated from the diffusion profile into the electrolyte layer. The electrochemical impedance, σE, was compared with k*. The oxygen partial pressure dependence of those two parameters were quite similar. The absolute value of k* was larger than expected from σE by a factor of 2 or higher.
