Summary

Using the screen-printing technology and a pilot-scale plant, cathode and anode thick films were deposited on YSZ substrates. LaSrMnO3 was chosen as a cathode material and a mixture of NiO and CeGdO2 was taken for the anode. The electroding process required adequate powder processing to prepare slurries compatible with the process. Deagglomeration and viscosity adjustment steps were carefully studied with particle size distribution analysis and viscosity measurements.
