Chou, Junko Matsuda, Kazunari Sasaki, Investigation of Fe-Cr-Al alloy for metal supported SOFC, 15th International Symposium on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells, SOFC 2017 ECS Transactions, 10.1149/07801.2069ecst, 78, 2069-2075, 2017.05, Porous Fe-Cr-Al alloy was investigated for the support material of solid oxide fuel cells. Interfacial resistance at 700oC in 3% H2O - 97% H2 atmosphere between the porous alloy and Ni coating was stable at around 10 mγcm2. Interfacial resistance at 700oC in air between the porous alloy and LSCF coating was stable at around 20 mγcm2. The surface oxide layer on the Fe-Cr-Al alloy consists of nano-sized γ-Al2O3 columns growing outward in the same direction, containing 4 at.% of Sr, which may contribute electronic conduction. It is expected that the negligible Cr content in the surface oxide layer can solve the Cr contamination problem, generally known in SOFC. We are also developing a cell using the porous Fe-Cr-Al alloy by a co-sintering process..

Matsuoka, Kazunari Sasaki, Durability of LSCF-coated Fe-Cr-Al alloy for SOFC applications, Journal of the Electrochemical Society, 10.1149/2.0791803jes, 165, 3, F181-F188, 2018.01, The long-term durability of La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3 (LSCF)-coated Fe-Cr-Al alloy was investigated as a novel current collector material for SOFCs. The LSCF coating and subsequent heat-treatment at 700–900C changed the microstructure of the surface oxide layer to a columnar structure of nanosize γ-Al2O3 arranged in the same direction, in which a small amount of Sr3Al2O6 contributes to the electronic conduction. The LSCF coating decreased the alloy oxidation rate by 23% at 700C compared to the case without coating, following the parabolic growth law. Raising the temperature from 700C to 900C increased the oxidation rate of the LSCF-coated alloy by 51 times. The oxidation mechanism at 900C was considered to be similar to that at 700C, because of the similarity in microstructure, crystal structure, elemental composition and electrical conductivity. It was estimated that the Cr2O3 layer begins to grow on the inner side after roughly 6,000 h at 700C, when the thickness of the surface oxide layer exceeds 1 μm. The same γ-Al2O3 columnar microstructure still covered the surface after 12,000 h. However, further improvement in durability and electrical conductivity is needed to meet the requirements for practical application..

The electrical resistance of the Al2O3-based surface oxide layer on the alloy decreased and was stable when La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3 (LSCF), La0.8Sr0.2MnO3 (LSM), LaNi0.6Fe0.4O3 (LNF), or Pr0.8Sr0.2MnO3 (PrSM) were first coated on the alloy and heat treated at 700 C in air. The activation energy, calculated from the resistance, also suggested that the surface oxide became more conductive with treatment. The surface oxide layer after treatment had a microstructure of columns growing outward in the same direction, containing small amounts of elements such as Sr, Ni, Fe, La, Mn, and Pr. The microstructure consists of polycrystalline g-Al2O3 and small amounts of Al
compounds with these elements. In the case of the LNF coating, the formation of NiAl2O4 was observed. The enhanced electrical conductivity may have resulted from the arrangement of the columnar structure, along with the electronic conduction path generated by the reaction of g-Al2O3 with these elements..

2. Daiki Ishibashi, Eunjoo Park, Shunsuke Taniguchi, Yuko Inoue, Jyh Tyng Chou, Kazunari Sasaki, Influence of cathode polarization change on chromium deposited on electrolyte surface near cathode reaction sites of SOFC, 14th International Symposium on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells, SOFC 2015; held as part of the Electrochemical Society, ECS Conference on Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage, 2015.07, It has been clarified that Cr deposition occurs significantly on the electrolyte surface near cathode reaction sites as a consequence of cathode polarization. In this study, we investigated the influence of a change in the cathode polarization on the Cr deposited on the electrolyte surface by using NiO/YSZ or NiO/GDC as the cathode material. The deposited Cr segregated at the interface of NiO and YSZ in the case of the NiO/YSZ cathode after a decrease in the cathode polarization, which suggests nucleation under a cathode polarization of 200 mV and growth of Cr compounds after decreasing the cathode polarization. In contrast, the amount of deposited Cr decreased in the case of the NiO/GDC cathode after decreasing the cathode polarization..

Hung-Cuong Pham, Shunsuke Taniguchi, Yuko Inoue, Jyh-Tyng Chou, Toru Izumi, Koji Matsuoka, Kazunari Sasaki, Modification of Surface Oxide of Porous Fe-Cr-Al Alloy by Coating and Heat-Treatment for the Application of Metal Supported SOFCs, SSI-20, 2015.06, Fe-Cr-Al alloy was investigated for the porous support material of metal supported SOFCs on the cathode side. We found that surface oxide layer of the porous Fe-Cr-Al alloy shows low electrical resistance when the porous alloy was coated with La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3 (LSCF) first, and then heat-treated at 700 oC in air. Small amount of Sr included in the Al2O3-rich surface oxide layer may change microstructure and contribute to electronic conduction. In this study, we investigated effect of coating materials using La0.8Sr0.2MnO3 (LSM), LaNi0.6Fe0.4O3 (LNF), Pr0.8Sr0.2MnO3 (PrSM), Ba0.5Sr0.5Co0.8Fe0.2O3 (BSCF), Nd0.8Sr0.2MnO3 (NdSM), La0.8Ca0.2CrO3(LCC), or Li0.025Ni 0.975O (LNO). Relatively low contact resistances were obtained in all cases when these materials were coated on the porous alloy first, and then heat-treated at 700 oC in air. Morphology and crystal structure of the surface oxide layer of the alloy was analyzed by STEM-EDS and TEM in detail to clarify the cause of low electrical resistance. .

We confirmed not only good heat resistance but also low electrical resistance at the interface between the porous substrate and a La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3 (LSCF) coating at 700 °C in air. Long-term durability of the oxidation resistance of the LSCF-coated Fe-Cr-Al alloy at 700 °C was investigated by measuring the mass gain, surface oxide thickness, and electrical resistance at different temperatures from 700 to 900 °C..
