The structure and performance of SmSr1-xAexCo2O6 (x=0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1; Ae=Ca, Ba) as intermediate temperature-solid oxide fuel cell (IT-SOFC) cathodes were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetry (TG), thermal expansion, electrical conductivity, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The SmSr1-xAexCo2O6 system's structure changes as x increases from 0 to 1. The SmSr0.8Ae0.2Co2O6 (SSAC; Ae=Ca, Sr, Ba) system has an orthorhombic structure with a Pnma space group. The crystal parameter of SSAC increases in the following order: Sr
