NOTE - Registration Requirements: As part of theDepartment?s implementationof e-Government, WE ARE REQUIRING THE SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS THROUGHGRANTS.GOV. There are several one-time actions you must complete in ordertosubmit an application through Grants.gov (e.g., obtain a Dun and BradstreetData Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, register with the CentralContractor Registration (CCR), register with the credential provider andregister with Grants.gov). You must complete all the one-time actions in?GetStarted? at www.Grants.gov prior to submitting your initial application.APPLICANTS, WHO ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH CCR AND GRANTS.GOV, SHOULD ALLOW ATLEAST 14 DAYS TO COMPLETE THESE REQUIREMENTS. It is suggested that theprocessbe started as soon as possible.Area of Interest 09 - Characterization of Atomic and Electronic StructureofElectrochemically Active SOFC Cathode SurfacesIn the cathode boundary regions of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), chargetransfer takes place at electrochemically-active oxide surfaces as neutralgasphase atoms become part of the ionic solid. The cathode oxides arestructurally defective, both atomically and electronically, in ways thatarenot yet fully characterized. Electrochemical charge transfer involvestransitions between electron states, which are a function of atomicstructureand the electrical potential maintained by the cell. The examination ofelectrode atomic structures and their electron states is of interest inorderto gain understanding into the charge transfer mechanisms of theelectrochemical process in SOFCs.Applications are requested for experimental or computational studiesresearching the relationship between atomic structure and electron statesatthe surfaces of realistic SOFC cathode materials and representativeoperatingconditions. A successful proposal will address one or more of thefollowingissues:1. The nature of atomic defects on cathode surfaces and how adsorbedreactantsinteract with those defect sites.2. The relationship between cathode surface chemistry and the resultingsurfaceelectronic states.3. The nature and modification of reactant electronic structure as itinteractswith the surface electronic structure.4. The development of instruments and experiments to explore surfacechemistryand electronic structure, in-situ, in high pO2 environments.To link to the master announcement DE-PS26-05NT42472-00, please click thefollowing link:https://e-center.doe.gov/iips/faopor.nsf/UNID/AFDC3E3018D30D1C8525700C005DB010?OpenDocument
