Patent-pending zirconia-based substrate for research on intermediate to high temperature (700-900°C) SOFC anode and cathode materials. The Hionic™ offers high strength for excellent handlability along with high conductivity for distinguishing subtle differences among different electrode materials
Hionic supports are 120 micrometers thick and come in four standard diameters:
20 mm disks
25 mm disks
28 mm disks
32 mm disks
Hionic™ Electrolyte Supports
Using proprietary fabrication methods and materials, fuelcellmaterials.com has developed a high strength and high performance electrolyte support. The HionicTM substrate is more than four times stronger than conventional fully stabilized YSZ-8 (8 mole% yttria stabilized zirconia) electrolytes. The high strength allows thin 120 micron substrates to be significantly more robust during handling, mounting and processing. The conductivity of the Hionic support rivals that of ScSZ-10 (10 mole% scandia stabilized zirconia). High conductivity combined with the thinness of the support minimizes the overall resistance of the Hionic platform, thus improving your ability to measure the properties of your electrodes and your cells.
- The perfect starting point for the researcher who wants to test a variety of anode and cathode materials in SOFC development.
- Robust support withstands stresses of handling during cell fabrication and testing.
- Dense membrane makes sealing easy allowing both compression and 'hard' sealing with metals, glasses, etc.
- High conductivity enhances measurement of anode and cathode performance by reducing the contribution of the electrolyte even at intermediate temperatures.
The HionicTM electrolyte support comes in standard sizes of 20, 25, 28 and 32 mm diameter disks
Cathode/Hionic and Anode/Hionic bilayer buttons (utilizing the electrodes from the NextCell™) are available
Custom substrate shapes and sizes are possible
