Ion conduction in three-layered ion-conductor systems is considered. Explicit analytic expressions for the isothermal transient ionic current and frequency-dependent impedance are derived. The analysis includes migration, diffusion and space-charge effects as contributors to the ionic motion. The resulting model allows conduction parameters such as diffusion coefficients and ion concentrations in three different layers to be obtained from one single measurement, either in the time or in the frequency domain. The implications of one or more of the layers being mixed ionic/electronic conductors are discussed, and it is argued that the proposed model provides a useful description of the coupled ionic/electronic motion occurring in such a mixed-conductor system.
