“Thermodynamic Stability of Perovskite and Lanthanum Nickelate-Type Cathode Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells”
This research investigated alternative, novel cathode materials for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), which are clean energy systems with high electrical conversion efficiency. A rational design approach was applied to achieve thermodynamic stability in this cathode material system. This research also resulted in a patent application.
