La0.3Sr0.7FeO3-δ (LSF)/CeO2 cathode supported Ce0.8Sm0.2O2-δ (SDC) electrolyte was prepared by a simple multilayer tape casting and co-firing method. SDC electrolyte slurry and LSF/CeO2 cathode slurry were optimized and the green bi-layer tapes were co-fired at different temperature. Phase characterizations and microstructures of electrolyte and cathode were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scan Electronic Microscopy (SEM). No additional phase peak line was observed in electrolyte and cathode support when the sintering temperature lower was than 1400 °C. The electrolytes were extremely dense with the thickness of about 20 μm. The cathode support was porous with electrical conductivity of about 4.21 S/cm at 750 °C. With Ni/SDC as anode, Open Current Voltage and maximum power density reached 0.61 V and 233 mW cm-2 at 750 °C, respectively.
