A fast proton conducting glass with proton transport number t H = 1 was successfully prepared by using conventional melting method. In-situ FTIR (Fourier transform infrared) measurements under hydrogen atmosphere, temperature of 300°C and applying 1 V between Pt electrodes were carried out in order to monitor the proton concentration. The electrode reaction on Pt in these conditions is similar to that under intermediate-temperature fuel cell operation. It was found from the in-situ FTIR measurements that the absorbance around 2900 cm-1 increases clearly after applying 1 V, whereas no significant change was observed around 3400 cm-1. Proton infiltration into the glass is discussed based on the in-situ FTIR and impedance results.
