A co-planar type single chamber solid oxide fuel cell (SC-SOFC) with linearly patterned electrode structures on the same surface as the electrolyte has been fabricated by robo-dispensing method. Paste materials of NiO-SDC-Pd cermet and (La0.7Sr0.3)0.95MnO3 (LSM) were selectively deposited onto a substrate of yttria stablized zirconia (YSZ) by extrusion through a syringe nozzle. The dispensed pastes were solidified upon solvent evaporation, and the anode and the cathode were sintered at 1350°C for 2 h and 1200°C for 1h, respectively. We have fabricated SC-SOFCs that have a single electrode pair with varying anode-to-cathode distances and interdigitated patterned electrodes with 2, 4, and 8 multiple pairs. The electrode microstructures of the resulting cells were examined by SEM. The electrochemical performance of the SC-SOFCs was also analyzed using impedance spectroscopy and a DC source meter.
