Porous yttria-stabilized bismuth oxides (YSB) were investigated as the backbones for La0.85Sr0.15MnO3−(LSM) infiltrated cathodes in intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells. The cathodes were evaluated using anode-supported single cells with scandia-stabilized zirconia as the electrolytes. With humidified H2 as the fuel, the cell showed peak power density of 0.33, 0.52, and 0.74 W cm−2 at 650, 700, and 750°C, respectively. At 650°C, the cell polarization resistance was only 1.38 Ω cm2, <50% of the lowest value previously reported, indicating that YSB is a promising backbone for the LSM infiltrated cathode.
