Composites for thermal expansion matched oxygen electrodes (2019–2022)

This project aims to develop high performance composite oxygen electrodes by using both negative thermal expansion materials and electrolyte materials to tailor the thermal expansivities and activities of the perovskite-based electrodes for reduced temperature solid oxide cells . Such composite electrodes will show highly matched thermal expansion with electrolyte without sacrificing the high activity at reduced temperatures. This project thus addresses an important practical issue - thermal expansion compatibility, and is of great significance to the solid oxide cells industries.
