Tubular SOFCs were produced by extrusion of the supporting anode composed by GDC10 and Cu oxides. A 10 μm thin GDC10 electrolytic layer and the LSF20:GDC10 cathode were deposited by dip-coating and the complete cell was co-sintered in one step. Thanks to the optimization of the composition and the employment of Li2O as sintering aid, the densification of the electrolyte was accomplished more than 500°C below the sintering temperature of GDC10. The cell had a maximum OCV of 0.54 V and the highest measured power density was 8.98 mW cm-2 with a peak power density projected to be 27.5 mW cm-2.
