Paper on 3D printed SOFCs published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A (selected as Hot Paper and for the cover of the issue)

3D printing of functional materials will revolutionize the energy sector by introducing complex shapes and novel functionalities never explored before. This will give rise to the next generation of enhanced devices ready for mass customization. Among others, electroceramic-based energy devices like solid oxide fuel and electrolysis cells are promising candidates to benefit from using 3D printing to develop innovative concepts that overcome shape limitations of currently existing manufacturing techniques. In this work, a new family of highly performing electrolyte-supported solid oxide cells were fabricated using stereolithography. Conventional planar and high-aspect ratio corrugated electrolytes were 3D-printed with yttria-stabilized zirconia to fabricate solid oxide cells. Corrugated devices presented an increase of 57% in their performance in fuel cell and co-electrolysis modes, which is straightforwardly proportional to the area enlargement compared to the planar counterparts. This enhancement by design combined to the proved durability of the printed devices (less than 35 mV/1000 h) represents a radically new approach in the field and anticipates a strong impact in future generations of solid oxide cells and, more generally, in any solid state energy conversion or storage devices.

Paper on the synthesis 2D-Ni(Co/Fe) hydroxides by Continuous hydrothermal flow synthesis (CHFS) published at the Journal: Reaction Chemistry & Engineering (open access)

In the frame of the Cell3Ditor project, DTU in collaboration with other research institutions report on the development made on the synthesis of NiFe-hydroxides in water solution with 2D nanofeatures by Continuous hydrothermal flow synthesis (CHFS) which is a facile, upscalable and cost-efficient synthetic method, enabling the nanostructuring of advanced functional materials in steady conditions, i.e. not in batch synthesis.
