Proton conductivity of yttrium-doped barium zirconate grown on MgO(100) using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) has been explored as a function of film thickness (60-670nm) related to crystal and grain structure in the nano scale. Highly textured thin film (60nm) without significant grain separation showed high ionic conductivity close to the bulk BYZ value while thick polycrystalline samples showed lower values with clear grain and grain boundary formation.
