Dense and microcrack free yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) was deposited onto porous NiO-YSZ anode tubes by dip coating without any vacuum assistance. The anode tubes were prepared by slip casting. Open circuit voltage of 1.05 V was obtained at , implying that the gas tightness of dip coating YSZ membranes is eligible for solid oxide fuel cell application. A fuel cell of -YSZ provides maximum power densities of , , , and at , , , and , respectively. The impedance data indicate that the resistivity of the YSZ electrolyte membrane is about at . At the same temperature, the electrode polarization resistance accounts for 74.8% of the cell’s total resistance under maximum power density condition.
