Spin-Coated La0.8Sr0.2Ga0.8Mg0.2O3-δ Electrolyte on Infiltrated Anodes for Biogas Utilization


Article Preview

Dense micrometric La0.8Sr0.2Ga0.8Mg0.2O3-δ (LSGM) films were deposited by spin-coating on porous LSGM scaffolds characterized by an homogeneous pore structure. Porous anodes were infiltrated with aqueous nickel nitrate solutions, dried and fired at 700 °C. Homogeneous metal coating with proper interconnections was observed by SEM, chemical stability was confirmed by XRD. Fuel cell tests and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were performed and discussed.
