Discover Open Access research at Strathprints

It's International Open Access Week, 24-30 October 2016. This year's theme is "Open in Action" and is all about taking meaningful steps towards opening up research and scholarship. The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde research outputs. Explore recent world leading Open Access research content by University of Strathclyde researchers and see how Strathclyde researchers are committing to putting "Open in Action".

An intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cell fabricated by one step co-press-sintering

Zhang, Lei and Tao, Shanwen (2011) An intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cell fabricated by one step co-press-sintering. International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, 36 (22). pp. 14643-14647. ISSN 0360-3199

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.
