Summary

Planar designs for solid oxide fuel cells contain layered structures of electrode and electrolyte materials that must be co-sintered to produce flat, crack-free layers. In this work, the sintering behavior of model electrolyte (YSZ) and anode (NiO-based) materials was studied using in situ video observation of sintering individual materials and bi-layers at temperatures up 1350d̀C. The behavior of bi-layers was then compared to the predictions of a constrained sintering model.
