We tested the atomic layer deposition of platinum layers onto various sputtered porous metals including silver, palladium, ruthenium, and gold as catalysts for solid oxide fuel cells. We investigated thermal and chemical stability against oxidation using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Fuel cell tests were conducted using the metal-atomic layer deposition platinum cathodes with 200 μm thick, 8% yttria-stabilized zirconia electrolytes and sputtered platinum anodes. Performance of the fuel cells was measured by comparing the current-voltage curves and maximum power densities with varying temperature.
