Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this work is to present the strategies and current state of development in the field of micro solid oxide fuel cells (μSOFC).

Design/methodology/approach

In the paper recent strategies of conventional and single chamber μSOFC are described. Some examples based on the author's research are presented.

Findings

It can be concluded that scale down of ceramic technologies is still more popular than MEMS. However, MEMS‐based technologies become recently to be used more frequently.

Research limitations/implications

The work is limited to the description of materials and technologies used in μSOFC.

Originality/value

The review presents very recent research in μSOFC. The results demonstrate critical areas in development of suitable technologies.
