Abstract: In this study we present the preparation of SOFC half cells by electrophoretic deposition. The cathode is deposited from a methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) suspension on dense apatite type lanthanum silicate (ATLS) pellets using a constant voltage. ATLS are a new class of electrolytes, which provides good oxygen permeability even at temperatures below 800°C. As cathode materials we used La2Ni0.8Cu0.2O4+δ (LNC) and La0.8Sr0.2Ni0.6Fe0.4O3 (LSNF). A conductive layer on the ATLS material was used to provide the necessary…
