The electronic structure of the protonic conductor Y-doped BaCeO 3 (BaCe0.90Y0.10O3-δ) has been studied by photoemission spectroscopy and X-ray absorption spectroscopy. The Fermi level (EF) of H2-annealed BaCe0.90Y 0.10O3-δ shifts to the conduction band side by approximately 0.4 eV. The holes and acceptor level are observed at the top of the valence band and just above EF, respectively. Their intensities are lower in the H2-annealed BaCe0.90Y 0.10O3-δ, indicating that doped hydrogen enters hole and acceptor states. These findings indicate that the electronic structure of the protonic conductor BaCe0.90Y0.10O3-δ obeys the rigid-band model.
