Anode supported cells (ASCs) with the Ni-YSZ/YSZ/GDC/LSCF is a great starting point for intermediate temperature (below 800°C) SOFC research and development. Using an ASC you receive an optimal balance of membrane and ionic function by using a very thin electrolyte.
Additional cell sizes and electrode geometries are available.
fuelcellmaterials offers contact pastes for both the anodes and cathodes of SOFCs. To achieve optimum results, it is important to maintain good electrical contact between the electrode surface and the current collector. Applying a thin layer of ink (LSM for the cathode and Nickel for the anode) between the electrodes and current collectors will ensure reproducible testing results.
