Multi-Scale and Multi-Physics Approach for Designing Materials and Microstructure of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Electrodes

Research Project Outline

Reduction of irreversible losses associated with reaction and mass transport is important for higher efficiency of the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). This project aims at improving SOFC efficiency by designing better materials and microstructure of electrodes. Toward this goal, intensive collaborations of experimental and simulation approaches will be performed. Drastic performance improvement of SOFC electrodes is challenged from both materials and microstructural aspects by integrating chemistry, mechanical engineering, materials engineering, etc.
