Micro-tubular solid oxide fuel cells (MT-SOFC) have recently attracted increasing attention due to their advantages, such as quick start-up/shut-down, high volumetric power density and better mobile/portable characteristics comparing favorably with planar and tubular SOFCs. Basically, there are four fabrication techniques to prepare MT-SOFCs: extrusion, cold isostatic pressing, slip-casting and phase-inversion. Among these techniques, the phase inversion method is a recently emerging technology to prepare the MT-SOFCs, which can be easily scaled up to realize an automatic and continuous preparation process. Therefore, this chapter gives a detailed account of the fabrication skills of micro-tubular SOFCs based on the phaseinversion techniques and the brief review of their performance test results.
