    A Ni-Y2O3-stabilized ZrO2 (Ni-YSZ) cermet anode was fabricated for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) by conventional ceramic processing using NiO-YSZ composite particles. No amorphous phases were found at the interface between Ni and YSZ, and there is an orientation relationship between the Ni and YSZ grains. The cermet anode showed high electrical performance at 800°C. The results indicate that the electrochemical activity of the Ni-YSZ cermet anode is enhanced with the microstructure.
