LanthanumStrontium Cobalt Ferrite (LSCF) is one of the two primary cathode materialsused by Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) developers and manufacturers (LSM beingthe other). LSCF offers good performance at operating temperatures of 750Â°C andlower, which makes it a quality option for use with anode supported SOFCs. TheLSCF powder is prepared with a slight A-site deficiency to improve itsstability. LSCF can be used with zirconia (YSZ and ScSZ) ceria (GDC and SDC)and lanthanum gallate based electrolytes. A ceria barrier layer is recommendedwhen using LSCF cathodes with zirconia based electrolytes. The LSCF cathodematerial can be applied by screen printing, painting or spraying after it is formulatedinto appropriate inks or suspensions. LSCF also can be mixed with one of theceria-based electrolyte (GDC or SDC) to improve cathode performance.
