Abstract: Solid oxide cells (SOCs) are attracting much more attention as promising energy conversion and storage devices. One of the challenges of optimizing of solid-oxide cells’ performance is that there are not enough triple-phase boundaries (TPB) in the electrode bulk. To enhance the reaction area for SOCs, Sr2Fe1.5Mo0.5O6-δ nanofibers are synthesized by electrospinning with metal nitrate precursors and used for SOC electrodes operated in both humidified air and a hydrogen atmosphere. SFMO nanofibers display a highly porous and crystallized perovskite structure and continuous pathways by XRD analysis and SEM observation. The average diameter of the SFMO nanofibers after sintering is about 100 nm. The La0.8Sr0.2Ga0.8Mg0.2O3-δ(LSGM) electrolyte-supported symmetrical cell with the SFMO nanofiber electrode exhibits enhanced electrochemical performance in humidified air and an H2 atmosphere. Moreover, a distribution of the relaxation time method is used to analyze the impedance spectra, and the polarization peaks observed are assigned to correspond different electrochemical processes. The results indicate that the SFMO nanofiber with an improved nanostructure can be the potential material for the SOC electrode. Keywords: solid-oxide cells; electrospinning nanofiber; distribution of relaxation time 1. Introduction Alleviating the increasing concern over problems of environment and energy pro- duction requires drastic modification of our energy system: moving from fossil fuels to low-carbon energy sources. Due to the intermittent characteristics of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy, long-term energy storage and efficient energy conversion technology are urgently needed. Solid-oxide cells (SOCs) are promising en- ergy conversion technology, which can produce electrical energy in solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and can also store excess energy into chemical fuels in solid-oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs) [1–4]. The electrode reaction’s rates have been experimentally and numerically proven to be dependent on the microstructure of the electrodes since the chemical and physical steps pro- ceed at the electrode’s surface and the electrode–electrolyte interface [5,6]. Specifically, the electrochemical performance relies on the porosity and length of the TPB [6–8], which are determined by the material synthesis and electrode fabrication techniques [9,10]. Among them, the nanostructured electrode materials are suggested to accelerate the penetration of fuel into the bulk and obtain prolonged TPBs in SOCs [11–13]. Electrospinning has been applied to the synthesis of ceramic nanofiber materials for the application of SOC electrodes because it provides an enlarged specific surface area, a continuous conduction pathway, and a highly porous structure [14–16]. Hieu et al. [17] electrospun the Ba0.5 Sr0.5 Co0.8 Fe0.2 O3-δ (BSCF) nanofiber and prepared a symmetrical cell on the GDC electrolyte, leading to an 80% reduction in area-specific resistance compared to the powder-based electrode.
