DescriptionThis volume provides a one-stop resource, compiling current research on solid oxide fuel cells. It is a collection of papers from The American Ceramic Society s 32nd International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites, January 27-February 1, 2008. Topics include recent technical progress on materials-related aspects of fuel cells and emerging trends in electrochemical materials, cell/stack fabrication and design, interface engineering, and long-term chemical interactions. This is a valuable, up-to-date resource for researchers in industry, government, or academia who are working with solid oxide fuel cells.
