Detective work on the fuel cell

Researchers are investigating new materials that can be used to reduce the operation temperature of solid oxide fuel cells: To do so, they apply an innovative method

02-Dec-2021

Solid oxide fuel cells consist of three important parts: an anode, a cathode and an electrolyte. While oxygen is incorporated into the cathode, oxygen is then transported through the electrolyte to the anode, where oxygen reacts with hydrogen to water. The fuel cell is able to convert the energy ...
