Melilite-type [A2]2[BI]2[BII2O7]2 gallates are promising ion conducting electrolytes for deployment in solid oxide fuel cells. Single crystals of [CaLa]2[Ga]2[Ga2O7]2, grown in an optical floating zone furnace, were investigated using a combination of transmission electron microscopy and single crystal X-ray diffraction. Strong anisotropic displacements of oxygen arise from the structural misfit between the interlayer Ca/La cations and the [Ga]-[Ga2O7] tetrahedral layers. A model employing...[Show more]
