Microtubular solid oxide fuel cells were fabricated by the multi-dip coating of ceramic aqueous slurries on steel wire. This is a very convenient way to make small straight tubes without requiring special handling. Prepared NiO-GDC/GDC double layered tubes were separated by dissolving the pre-coated polystyrene layer in organic solvent, then were sintered at 1350°C. Then a cathode layer of LSCF-GDC was also formed on the double layered tubes with heat treatment at 1100°C. The prepared microtubular cell performs with a maximum power density of 0.34 W/cm<sup>2</sup> at 550°C. Microstructure observation of the tubes suggested the possibility of further improvement in cell quality.
