Samples, Substrates and Targets
Dense Button Cells - BZY15, BZY15-Ni, and BZCY81-Ni
BZY is considered to be one of the candidate materials for proton ceramic fuel cells (PCFCs) and electrolyzer cells (PCECs) due to its high proton conductivity and chemical stability towards H2O and CO2 containing atmospheres.
Suitable for studies of proton conduction, impedance electroscopy of bulk, grain boundary, and electrodes.
Standard electrolyte for testing of electrodes for PCFCs and PCECs.MORE
NORECS offers ceramic targets for Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) and other purposes requiring large disks. The targets we can produce are maximum 35 mm in diameter and 4 mm thickness with relative density 90% or higher. Currently NORECS offers PLD targets made from 8YSZ and BZY (suitable for solid electrolyte applications and electrical measurements in oxidizing and reducing atmospheres), TiO2 (various qualities, incl. P25) (suitable as photocatalyst or for conductivity studies), and pure and doped ternary oxides such as acceptor-doped LaMO3 perovskites. Send us your specified requirements and applications and we will consider and quote it.MORE
The samples are disks with 0, 1, 2, or 3 Pt electrodes or bars without electrodes or with Pt end-face electrodes. The electrodes are made with commercial Pt-pastes and may have Pt mesh embedded. The samples are uniaxially cold-pressed and subsequently sintered to >90% density. The ceramic powders are mostly commercial state-of-the-art supplies or spray-pyrolyzed.MORE
NORECS can supply a wide range of customized ceramic oxide powders for advanced energy applications: electrolyte, cathode, and anode materials for solid oxide fuel cells, materials for gas separation membranes, lead-free electroceramics.MORE
