Elaboration of the electrolyte with controlled microstructure The elaboration of the electrolyte is based on the manufacture of strips or deposits 5 to 10 microns thick. A comparative study will be carried out with several shaping techniques with a view to better controlling the thickness of the electrolyte, in particular by strip casting, dip-coating, inkjet.
The objective of this thesis work is to develop innovative processes allowing the fabrication of textured cell architectures in order to improve their performance and durability.
This work will be performed at the Institute of Research on Ceramics (IRCER UMR CNRS 7315). The conversion of hydrogen into electricity in low temperature fuel cell systems is positioned at a high level of technological maturity, but requires very high purity hydrogen. High temperature fuel cells with ceramic membrane (SOC: Solid Oxide Cell) with anionic or protonic conduction, although less mature, allow the use of various fuels, and can operate in reversible mode alternating the functions of electrolyser and generator . The objective of the project is therefore to develop a complete cell that is both robust and flexible with respect to the fuel, and operating at relatively low temperature (600°C).Eligibility criteria
