65886 New fossil fuel energy systems are required that consume less fuel and generate less greenhouse gases and polluting emissions. Moreover, the cost of these systems must be comparable to that of current systems. The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is a candidate technology for meeting these requirements, and this project will utilize low-cost materials, synthesis, and fabrication techniques to allow SOFCs to operate efficiently at less than 600¿C. In Phase I, new SOFC component materials, including electrolyte, cathode, and anode materials, will be synthesized and evaluated by property testing. Based on the optimum combination of materials, a fabrication process for thin-film ceria fuel cells will be developed, and electrochemical testing will be conducted to evaluate SOFC performance. Commercial Applications And Other Benefits as described by awardee: Commercial applications include residential power and heat, remote power generators, military power supplies, auxiliary power units for transportation, and stationary power
