The solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) with yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) and Lanthanum strontium manganites (LSM) layer were produced under (i) room temperature (ii)700degree C and (iii) 1000degree C. Here at Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource, a nondestructive X-ray tomographic imaging technique (Transmission X-ray Microscope) is used to examine the material and the pore networks within an SOFC anode. With the aid of Matlab and Avizo, we reconstructed the three dimensional (3D) nano/microstructure in order to understand the effect of the temperature on the morphology of the SOFC material.
