Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Lithiated NiO was adopted as electrodes for doped-ceria based IT-SOFCs. Li 0.3Ni 0.7O y electrode is chemically compatible with Ce 0.8Gd 0.05Y 0.15O 1.9 (GYDC) electrolyte in air. Single cell with configuration Li 0.3Ni 0.7OGYDCLi 0.3Ni 0.7O was fabricated by one step dry-pressing and sintering at 1200 °C. Maximum power density of 503 mWcm -2 at 0.5 V was achieved at 600 °C with H 2 as fuel and air as oxidant. Cell stability test was carried out at 575 °C under a constant voltage of 0.3 V and a current output of 380 mAcm -2 was continually generated after an initial performance decrease. A stable anode is required for symmetrical IT-SOFCs. © 2011, Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC.
