In order to evaluate the laminating and co-firing technique on the performance of anode-supported Ce0.8Sm0.2O1.9 (SDC) film electrolyte and its single cell, NiO-YSZ and NiOSDC anode-supported SDC film electrolytes were fabricated by laminating 24 sheets of anode plus one sheet of electrolyte and co-firing. La0.4Sr0.6Co0.2Fe0.8O3-δ (LSCF)-SDC cathode was coated on the SDC electrolytes to form a single cell. The lamination was tried at different laminating temperatures and pressures and the co-firing was carried out at different temperatures. The results showed that the laminating temperature should above the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the binder. The laminating pressure of 70 MPa resulted in warp of the samples. The best co-firing temperature of the anode-supported SDC film electrolyte was 1400°C. The SDC film electrolyte formed well adherence to the anode. The NiO-YSZ anode had larger flexural strength than the NiO-SDC anode. The NiO-YSZ anode-supported SDC film electrolyte single cell had an open circuit voltage of 0.803 V and a maximum power density of 93.03 mW/cm2 with hydrogen as fuel at 800°C.
