Abstract

A simple method to produce graphene-yytria stabilised zirconia (YSZ) ceramic composite with significant improvement in electrical properties is reported here. The material was consolidated by annealing in presence of Argon gas that allowed densification of the ceramics. A detailed x-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis was used to study the phases and crystallinity of graphene-YSZ ceramic composite. XRD patterns of the sintered composite showed that graphene diffraction peaks were detected at 2θ≈27°. Furthermore, experimental results indicate that electrical conductivity of YSZ composites drastically increased with the addition of graphene platelets, and it reached a value of 2.8 S/cm at 2 wt.%.
