Electrochemical Performance of La0.7Sr0.3Cu1-xFexO3-δ as Cathode Material in IT-SOFCs
To obtain more detail information about the cathode of La0.7Sr0.3Cu1-xFexO3-δ（x= 0.1,0.3,0.5,0.7,0.9）in IT-SOFCs, the cathode material La0.7Sr0.3Cu1-xFexO3-δ（x=0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 0.9）was synthesized by a sol-gel method. X-ray diffraction revealed it to be form a single phase of perovskite. The high temperature electrical conductivity was measured by using the four-point dc technique, and cathodic overpotential with SDC（Sm0.15Ce0.85O1.925） electrolyte support was measured by using a current-interruption technique. The investigation of electrocheimical properties suggested that La0.7Sr0.3Cu0.7Fe0.3O3-δ has the highest electrical conductivity and the lowest cathodic polarization. Using La0.7Sr0.3Cu0.7Fe0.3O3-δ as cathode and 65%NiO/SDC as anode based on SDC electrolyte one can obtain higher current density and power density at intermediate temperatures, La0.7Sr0.3Cu0.7Fe0.3O3-δ is considered to be a possible cathode adapted to IT-SOFCs.
