Enhancement of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) Cathode Electrochemical Performance Using Multi-Phase Interfaces

Performer: University of Wisconsin System

Project No: FE0009435

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project focuses on advancing the fundamental understanding of how cathodes operate, centering on the role of material interfaces in determining electrochemical performance. Improved cell/stack life and performance will reduce operating cost and increase efficiency, resulting in reduction in the cost of electricity and reduction of CO2 emissions from the entire platform. Specifically, this project will determine new operation mechanisms and material architectures using advanced physical and electrochemical characterization techniques and tools.
