Cerium Oxide, Praseodymium-doped
Product Number : CEO-PD-05
Fuel Cell Electrolyte
American Elements specializes in producing Cerium Oxide, Praseodymium-doped, cerium oxide stabilized by various doping solid oxide fuel cell cathode and electrolyte cross section by SEM levels of Praseodymium, a material that upon firing forms a highly ionically conductive thin film electrolyte layer for use in solid oxide fuel cell electrochemistry structures. Praseodymium doped Ceria belongs to a class of doped Ceria compounds with ionic conductivity exceeding yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) electrolytes. These include yttria doped ceria (YDC) and gadolinium doped ceria (GDC). Even higher conductivity can be achieved with American Elements Scandia doped Zirconia (SCZ) and Yttria doped Bismuth Oxide. Praseodymium-doped Cerium Oxide is available in a powder for tape casting, air spray, extrusion and sputtering fuel cell applications and as an ink for screen printing. Samaria doping levels are available at 10% and 20% and as specified by customer. American Elements provides guidance on firing parameters, doping levels, and thermal expansion matching with American Elements' cathode and anode cell layers.
