Recent Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Cathode Studies

Recent Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Cathode Studies
May 2013
December 2016 (Updated)

In 2007, the SECA program began a focused effort to correlate the surface attributes of common SOFC cathodes (LSM, LSCF) with performance and stability. In parallel, various cathode infiltration techniques and material sets were investigated to assess the potential for improved performance and stability. This series of three integrated and eight topical reports—written by SECA program researchers—provides a concise, portfolio-wide synopsis of this research.
