Abstract: Here, we demonstrate the use of X-ray absorption edge spectroscopy in conjunction with high resolution X-ray nano-computed tomography to provide a comprehensive microstructural map of a Ni–YSZ electrode from a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell. The experimentally derived microstructure has been used to develop a geometrical test for microstructural homogeneity.
