Novel fabrication technique for high performance fuel cells


Matthias Breitwieser has been awarded with the best poster prize at the 647th Hereaus Seminar for "Next Generation PEM Fuel Cells: Strategic Partnerships for Tackling Multiscale Challenges" in Bad Honnef in July 2017.

On his poster "Direct Membrane Deposition (DMD): A novel and versatile fabrication technique for high performance fuel cells" Breitwieser explained how functional coatings for high potential fuel cells can be fabricated with a novel spray coating technique. The membrane electrode assembly (MEA) fabricated with this new method shows better electrochemical properties than conventionally fabricated MEAs and thus helps improve the performance of the fuel cell.
