Abstract

We report a process for the successful incorporation of ceria in to yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) columnar nanostructures grown by glancing angle deposition (GLAD) technique, resulting in high interface density columnar nanostructures. The incorporation of ceria into YSZ columns is confirmed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) in a cross sectional geometry with in-situ analysis of elemental x-ray mapping technique and energy dispersive x-ray analysis (EDX). Controlled engineering of such nanostructures is potentially important in the future development of high efficiency solid oxide fuel cell electrolytes. The challenges and advantages of this process are discussed.
