Nano-structured La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe 0.8O3-∞ (LSCF6428) cathode for protonic ceramic fuel cell (PCFC) prepared from planetary bead-milled nanoparticles was investigated. The cathode made by the bead-milled particles showed a porous structure consisting of homogeneous size particles and pores in the range 100 nm. The PCFC comprised of this cathode, Ni anode and BaCe0.6Zr 0.2Y0.2O3-∞ (BCZY622) electrolyte increased the cell performances about 6 times that of the cell using the cathode without milling. The cathode preparation using bead-milling is effective in improving the cell performance with an expanded contact area of the cathode/electrolyte interface due to decreasing particle size and good adhesion of the particles to the electrolyte.
