Title: Method of making a cermet fuel electrode containing an inert additive

Abstract

An electrode is attached to a solid electrolyte material by: (1) mixing a metallic nickel component and 1 wt% to 10 wt% of yttria stabilized zirconia having particle diameters up to 3 micrometers with an organic binder solution to form a slurry, (2) applying the slurry to a solid zirconia electrolyte material, (3) heating the slurry to drive off the organic binder and form a porous layer of metallic nickel substantially surrounded and separated by the zirconia particles, and (4) electro-chemical vapor depositing a skeletal structure between and around the metallic nickel and the zirconia particles where the metallic nickel components do not substantially sinter to each other, yet the layer remains porous.
