Thiscomposite cathode powder is a 50/50 wt% mixture of Lanthanum StrontiumManganite (LSM) and Yttrium Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ), and is typically used asthe first layer in a two-layer cathode, where the second (top) layer is pureLSM. This two-layer approach provides higher performance than single-layer LSMcathodes, and is best used with YSZ ceramic electrolyte materials. Our LSM/YSZcathode material can be applied by screen printing, painting or spraying afterit is formulated into appropriate inks or suspensions.
Sincethis LSM-YSZ Cathode Powder is a mixed component powder we do not have aparticle size specification. This powder uses LSM-P and YSZ8-TC as itscomponents. The powderâs particle size distribution will be bimodal onceprocessing is complete.
This cathode powder has been created forSolid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) applications in mind.
