Abstract
The morphological and chemical modifications following reduction in hydrogen at 873 K of stannic oxide deposited on ceria particles were studied in order to gain insights into the nature of Ce-Sn interaction under reducing atmosphere, simulating the operating conditions in a solid oxide fuel cell. It is shown that the co-presence of the two materials improves the power output of fuel cells up to a factor of 10 when compared to ceria alone. Through high resolution transmission electron microscopy...
