The influence of current load on the growth of SrZrO3 formed at the interface of a gadolinia-doped ceria (GDC) interlayer and yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) electrolyte was analyzed using high-resolution electron microscopy. A cell with LNF (LaNi0.6Fe0.4O3) cathode was prepared after removing the LSCF cathode using HCl. The LNF cathode was used to eliminate the effect of Sr diffusion during cell operation. These cells were operated under 0.2 A cm−2 at 800°C. For the cell with the LNF cathode, no significant change was observed in the amount of SrZrO3. At the SrZrO3/GDC interface, crystal orientation was the same from the GDC side to the SrZrO3 side. Before cell operation, the GDC grain had some defects and no clear boundary was distinguished between GDC and SrZrO3. After cell operation, the SrZrO3/GDC interface was clearer and crystallization of SrZrO3 proceeded.
