Influence of Sintering Temperature on the Electrochemical Performance of Sm0.5-XGdxSr0.5Co 3-δ/Gd0.1Ce0.9O1.95 Composite Cathode
In this paper, Sm0.5-xGdxSr0.5CoO3-δ (SGSC, x=0 and 0.2) powders were prepared using the solid-state reaction method. Their structure was identified by XRD. All powders formed the perovskite phase when calcined at 1100°C for 5 h. Sm0.3Gd0.2Sr0.5CoO3-δ/Gd0.1Ce0.9O1.95 slurries were screen printed onto both surfaces of Gd0.1Ce0.9O1.95 electrolyte and fired at different temperatures to fabricate the composite cathodes. The electrochemical property of the composite cathodes was characterized by the alternative current impedance spectroscopy. The impedance resistance of the composite cathodes increased with the increase of sintering temperature. For instance, the impedance resistance of the composite cathode fired at 1000 °C was 0.0875 Ω·cm2 at 700 °C, while it was 0.175 Ω·cm2 when fired at 1100 °C.
