Investigation of cathodic reaction in SOFCs and PCFCs by using patterned thin film model electrodes
March 10-14, 2019
In recent years, fuel cells operating at relatively high temperatures, such as solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) using an oxide ion conducting electrolyte and proton ceramics fuel cells (PCFCs) using an proton conducting electrolyte, attract attentions as high-efficient energy-conversion devices. For further enhancements of the performance and the durability of SCFCs and PCFCs, it is essential to understand the electrode reactions. In particular, the knowledge on the dominant reaction path in the electrodes would help us to optimize the material and the microstructure of the electrode.
