Thin films of 8 mol% yttria stabilised zirconia (YSZ) electrolyte have been deposited on non-conducting porous NiO-YSZ anode substrates using electrophoretic deposition (EPD) technique. Deposition of such oxide particulates on non-conducting substrates is made possible by placing a conducting steel plate on the reverse side of the presintered porous substrates. Thickness of the substrates, onto which the deposition has been carried out, varied in the range 0.5-2.0 mm. Dense and uniform YSZ thin films (thickness: 5-20 mu m) are obtained after being cofired at 1400 degrees C for 6 h. The thickness of the deposited films is seemed to be increased with increasing porous substrate thickness. Solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) performance is measured at 800 degrees C using coupon cells with various anode thicknesses. While a peak power density of 1. 41 W cm 22 for the cells with minimum anode thickness of 0.5 mm is achieved, the cell performance decreases with anode thickness.
