Purpose The purpose of this work is to present the strategies and current state of development in the field of micro solid oxide fuel cells SOFC.Designmethodologyapproach In the paper recent strategies of conventional and single chamber SOFC are described. Some examples based on the author's research are presented.Findings It can be concluded that scale down of ceramic technologies is still more popular than MEMS. However, MEMSbased technologies become recently to be used more frequently.Research limitationsimplications The work is limited to the description of materials and technologies used in SOFC.Originalityvalue The review presents very recent research in SOFC. The results demonstrate critical areas in development of suitable technologies.
