SINOPSIS

A low-pressure plasma reactor equipped with a convergent nozzle is used to synthesize cathode materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell applications. Nitrated precursors dissolved in water are injected by a difference in pressure from each part of a pulsed valve. When the precursors go through the reactor, water vaporizes due to vacuum and plasma, nitrates are transformed into NOx, while La, Sr, and Mn ions are oxidized by the activated species of plasma and, finally, La1-xSrxMnO3 is deposited on a substrate. The nozzle causes a supersonic flow in the reactor leading to high particle velocities. We have modeled gases flow in the reactor with the FLUENT® code in order to quantify the velocity of gases. Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA) and Laser Doppler Granulometry (LDG) measurements gave us the velocity, concentration and diameters of the injected particles. Infrared spectroscopy was used to quantify the conversion rate of precursors into La1-xSrxMnO3. These techniques have permitted to improve our knowledge on the behavior of sprayed particles in low pressure supersonic plasma reactor. This set-up has been developed to obtain a perovskite deposited with a controlled chemical composition.
