Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are one type of fuel cells and are electrochemical reactors that convert chemical energy of fuel gas into electrical energy with minimal environmental hazards [1,2].
The major challenges for commercialization of SOFCs are as follows:
Table 3311 lists the major properties of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs).

Except for Ni/YSZ as the most common anode material in SOFCs, gadolinium doped ceria oxide (GDC), doped SrTiO3 [3,4], and Cu-CeO-YSZ  are also used. Nonetheless, some of them have disadvantages of complicated fabrication processes, low conductivity or poor electrochemical catalyst activity.
