Fuel Cell

The Fuel Cell Laboratory has a wide range of fuel cell component fabrication and characterization equipment. Since our current research efforts focus on solid oxide fuel cells, most of the facilities are ceramic powder and pellet synthesis equipment. Virtually all kinds of oxide ceramics can be prepared in our lab. In addition, a dip coater, manufactured by KVS Instruments, provides the capability of sol-gel processing of oxide coatings for fuel cell applications. The fuel cell characterization facilities include:
