Tailoring of microstructural evolution in impregnated SOFC electrodes

Prof. John Irvine

The objective of this project is to develop and demonstrate solution methods for introducing the active constituents into SOFCs. If successful, the new approach could be applied to the manufacture of fuel cells that combine high performance with durability and resistance to contaminants.

Methodologies will be developed to tailor impregnations over a broad range of composition space. Studies utilising electrochemical, spectroscopic and microstructural techniques will be used to test performance, durability and resistance to contaminants, thus informing a choice of impregnate systems.
