A method is proposed to demonstrate the use of Ruddlesden-Popper-Type epitaxial film as oxygen electrode for solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and to provide the detailed information of the oxygen reduction process. Pulsed laser deposition technology used to design the oxygen electrode. The formation of SOFC hetero-epitaxial system was observed during the reduction process. It was observed that an electrochemically active epitaxial system can be prepared with oxygen electrode and yttrium stabilized zirconia (YSZ) electrolyte substrate. Electrode film/YSZ substrate was used for their chemical stability, closer thermal expansion with the YSZ substrates, and high quality of YSZ crystals. The investigation of hetero-epitaxial SOFC system opened new directions for studying the reaction anisotropy and strain effect by the interaction of electrode/electrolyte interface.
