Mg3TeO6-type Ca0.8Y2.4Sn0.8O6 has been found as a new structure family of oxide-ion conductors. From bond-valence-based energy (BVE) calculations for 147 compositions, which contain tin (Sn) as an essential element, Mg3TeO6-type Ca0.8Y2.4Sn0.8O6 was found to have a low energy barrier for oxide-ion migration. Ca0.8Y2.4Sn0.8O6 was synthesized by the solid-state reaction, and its electrical conductivity and crystal structure were investigated. The total electrical conductivity at various partial oxygen pressures and band gap estimated from the UV-vis spectrum suggested that Ca0.8Y2.4Sn0.8O6 is a pure oxide-ion conductor. The activation energy for the oxide-ion conductivity of Ca0.8Y2.4Sn0.8O6 was 1.39(4) eV. Synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction data of Ca0.8Y2.4Sn0.8O6 at 300 and 1273 K were successfully analyzed with the Mg3TeO6-type structure. The BVE calculation using the refined crystal structure of Ca0.8Y2.4Sn0.8O6 at 1273 K strongly suggested three dimensional oxide-ion diffusion.
