Cr-poisoning in (La,Sr)(Co,Fe)O-3 cathodes after 10,000 h SOFC stack testing

After 10,000 h solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) stack operation, the Cr-poisoning situation in (La0.6Sr0.4) (Co0.2Fe0.8)O-3 (LSCF)-based cathode material is depicted in this work. Systematic Cr profiling by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), from post-operation samples taken at different locations within the air flow field, reveals Cr accumulation in electrochemically active cathode regions, although the major amount of Cr is trapped in inactive surface-proximal cathode regions; the 20 m LSCF current collector does not fully impede the Cr access to the functional cathode.
