Recently, atomic layer deposition (ALD) has drawn much attention as a suitable tool for fabrication and engineering of high performance fuel cell catalysts and electrodes. Intrinsic merits of ALD enable synthesis of conformal and uniform film even at a sub-nm scale with excellent stoichiometry control and reproducibility. Leveraging the unique characteristics, ALD has proven its promising potential as a solution to achieve two major challenges of solid oxide fuel cell research: sluggish kinetics at low operational temperatures and long-term stability. In this review, recent efforts to address the challenges by the use of ALD-based functionalization of surfaces and interfaces of cell components are discussed.
