The project aims to identify the mechanisms of degradation of electrochemical cell materials over time during their operation in EHT or SOFC mode. This work should provide valuable data for the development of new generations of electrode / electrolyte / electrode stack optimized for aging and maintaining high performance after more than 1000h of operation. This project is the continuation of the Lavoisier "FIABIPERO" project. During this project, we develop in the GREMAN laboratory, a sample holder in temperature and undercurrent to characterize the evolution of the phases by X-ray diffraction. This work, in progress, is the subject of a valuation by deposit of patent between the two partners CEA and GREMAN. The project "MELUSINE" is therefore the continuity with the characterization of cells by X-ray diffraction in situ. In addition, to better understand the mechanisms involved, the layers forming the cell will be characterized by 3D reconstruction using the FIB device. The ultimate goal is to improve cell aging to achieve industrial transfer to SRT-MC.
