Abstract

Donor doping of the p-type solid oxide fuel cell cathode, Sr(Ti,Fe)O 3-δ, with La was pursued to examine the role of minority charge carriers (electrons) on the oxygen exchange rate. Model dense thin film cathodes of (La,Sr)(Ti,Fe)O3-δ were fabricated by pulsed laser deposition. Optical transmission spectroscopy measurements demonstrated that the addition of the donor La resulted in a change in valence state of Fe from 4+ to 3+, suggesting a rise in Fermi level. The activation energy of the cathode's area specific resistance, studied by impedance spectroscopy, was found to be lower with La addition; however, the magnitude of the area specific resistance was not lowered.
