My thesis focuses on understanding the correlation between intrinsic properties of electrode components and microstructural features to performance. We use Electrostatic Spray Deposition (ESD) technique to deposite mixed ionic-electronic conductor (MIEC) material to be used as cathode material in IT-SOFC.
