Inkjet printing is a potential contactless and mask-free additive manufacturing approach for solid oxide fuel cells. Here, a highly stable cathode ink using La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3 was developed and characterized with particle size analysis, viscosity, surface tension, density, and thermal analysis. Both fresh and 6-months stored inks showed excellent jetability behavior with a Z number of 2.77 and 3.45, respectively. The ink was successfully inkjet-printed on a (LiNaK)2CO3-Gd:CeO2 porous electrolyte substrate to fabricate a symmetric cell. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy measurements showed that at 550 °C the inkjet printing lowered the ohmic resistance to one-third (from 1.05 Ω cm2 to 0.37 Ω cm2) and the mass diffusion resistance by 4.25 times (from 6.09 Ω cm2 to 1.43 Ω cm2) as compared to drop-casted cell by creating a hierarchical porous structure and increasing reaction sites. Successful inkjet printing of the functional electrode material opens up a new avenue for the fabrication of the low-temperature ceramic fuel cells.
