Ceramic Technologies for Anode-Supported Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
One of the most promising technologies for future applications of solide oxide fuel cells (SOFC)is the so-called “anode-supported” configuration: a dense yttria-stabilised zirconia (YSZ) ceramic electrolyte is deposited as a thin film over a porous Ni / YSZ cermet substrate anode, followed by a porous ceramic cathode such as La1-xSrxMnO3 (LSM). In this paper, a short review is made of the current technologies available to achieve this particular architecture, and to optimise the service behaviour. Then, alternative materials and fabrication technologies, as well as their possible impact on performance, are proposed and investigated.
