A tritium imaging plate technique (TIPT) was used to measure the hydrogen solubility and diffusivity of a proton-conducting material, Zr-doped BaInO2.5. After being exposured to tritiated water vapor, the specimen was cut into halves and photo-stimulated luminescence (PSL) images of the crosssection of the cut specimen were obtained. Based on the PSL distribution profiles and intensities, hydrogen diffusivity and solubility in the specimens were determined. The hydrogen solubility and diffusivity in Zrdoped BaInO2.5 clearly depended on the content of Zr. This characteristic of the Zr content is in agreement with the Zr-content dependency of its proton conductivity, which was measured by an alternating current (AC) impedance method.
