Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC’s) offer the potential to greatly reduce man’s dependence on coal and oil for the production of electricity. They are clean, quiet and efficient. At the heart of these devices lies a complex combination of polycrystalline ceramic materials, each having to meet a particular set of structural and electrochemical requirements. Engineers control the performance of each component through manipulation of chemical and physical properties of the starting powders.
Particle size is of critical importance to the powder properties and to the performance of the cells. Laser diffraction particle size analysis has proven to be an excellent way to monitor and control particle size for these materials during powder synthesis and component fabrication.
