Fabrication of Ni-Based Anode Supported SOFCs by Aqueous Tape Casting


Article Preview

In this paper, the sintering behavior of Ni/YSZ anode and YSZ electrolytes fabricated by aqueous tape casting were studied. This study involved tape casing of Ni/YSZ (8 mol% Y2O3 stabilized ZrO2) anode, and co-sintering of anode supports and electrolytes. At last, thickness of 140 mm (after sintering) with uniform microstructure and ~30% porosity anode and thickness of ~10 0m (after sintering) with high density (> 95%) and electrolyte were achieved.
