In this paper we consider an analytical and numerical study of a reaction-diffusion system for describing the formation of transition front waves in some electrodeposition (ECD) experiments. Towards this aim, a model accounting for the coupling between morphology and composition of one chemical species adsorbed at the surface of the growing cathode is(More)
Low energy X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and soft X-ray absorption (XAS) microspectroscopies at high space-resolution are employed for the investigation of the coelectrodeposition of composites consisting of a polypyrrole(PPy)-matrix and Mn-based ternary dispersoids, that have been proposed as promising electrocatalysts for oxygen-reduction electrodes.(More)
The challenges in development of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are reducing their dimensions and increasing their efficiency and durability, which requires physicochemical characterization at micro-scales of the device components during operation conditions. Recently, the unique potential of scanning photoelectron microscopy (SPEM) has been demonstrated by(More)
In this research we have fabricated and tested Au/Dy 2 O 3 composites for applications as Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) electrocatalysts. The material was obtained by a process involving electrodeposition of a Au-Dy alloy from a urea/choline chloride ionic liquid electrolyte, followed by selective oxidation of Dy to Dy 2 O 3 in air at high temperature.
