Thin-film solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) materials

A.J. Jacobson, C. Yu and W. Gong,     University of Houston, USA

Abstract:

The focus of this chapter is on the materials used in micro solid oxide fuel cells based on thin films. Micro fuel cells have attracted interest because they have the potential to provide high storage capacities per unit volume and weight for applications in portable electronic devices. Thin-film syntheses and properties of the individual materials components (electrolytes, anodes, cathodes) are discussed, followed by examples of specific device structures.
