Description of LSCF Cathode Powder

As a solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) cathode material, Lanthanum Strontium Cobalt Ferrite (LSCF) should help to develop, and maintain cell performance, and have long-term durability and high conductivity. LSCF has the low-temperature properties required for solid oxide and ceramic oxygen systems. LSCF maintains higher conductivity than YSZ though the ionic conductivity is lower than YSZ in SOFC. The best operating temperature is 700~1000 ℃, when the atmosphere is below 700℃, the LSC cathode powder can be a better cathode of SOFC.
