Abstract

A cost-effective cell fabrication process was developed for intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFCs). Co-doped ceria Ce 0.8Gd0.05Y0.15O1.9 (GYDC) was synthesized by carbonate co-precipitation method. Lithiated NiO was prepared by glycine-nitrate combustion method and adopted as cathode material for IT-SOFCs. Single cell was fabricated by one-step dry-pressing and co-firing anode, anode functional layer (AFL), electrolyte and cathode together at 1200 °C for 4 h. The cell presented decent performance and an overall electrode polarization resistance of 0.54 O cm2 has been achieved at 600 °C. These results demonstrate the possibility of using lithiated NiO as cathode material for ceria-based IT-SOFCs and the development of affordable fuel cell devices is encouraged. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
