Channeled yttria-stabilized cubic phase of the zirconia (Ni–YSZ) cermets are produced by reduction of laser-assisted directionally solidified NiO–YSZ lamellar eutectics. The material is formed by ∼400 nm wide alternating lamellae of 40% porous Ni and YSZ, which serve as parallel channels for gas flow and electronic transport and for oxygen ion diffusion. The low-energy interfaces formed between the metallic Ni particles and the YSZ prevent particle coarsening and impart long-term stability to the anode at operating temperatures. The electrical conductivity and the pore size distribution present no degradation after 300 h at 900°C under a H2/N2 atmosphere. This stability is indicative of an improvement in comparison with conventional Ni–YSZ anodes for solid oxide fuel cells.
