|Abstract||The superconducting materials Bi2Sr2CaCu2O81x, and Bi2Sr2CuO61x were identified as possible candidates for contact layer materials between the perovskite-type ceramic cathode and the metallic interconnector for intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFCs). The two compounds were synthesized by solid-state reaction and citrate complexation techniques. Densification experiments were performed in air at different temperatures. It was found that the pressed pellets fabricated from both the phases had undergone shape changes due to swelling at temperatures above 800�C. Since the processes of volume expansion and crystallization were found to compete with the sintering process, it was expected to be very difficult to achieve compact layers from these materials. The conductivity measurements indicated metallic behavior of both phases and rather low conductivity values for application as a contact layer in IT-SOFC. Dilatometric experiments were also carried out on these materials to measure their thermal expansion coefficients. The properties of commercial-grade YBa2Cu3O72x were also investigated for comparison.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
