MRT Fuel Cell & Battery Lab

The MRT Fuel Cell Lab contributes to the development of electrochemical technologies for energy conversion and storage. The research activities are focused on both experimental and theoretical-modeling studies of transport phenomena, with the aim to:
-characterize the limiting physical phenomena
-develop innovative components
-optimize system operation and lifetime
The ongoing projects regard polymer electrolyte fuel cells, redox flow batteries and Lithium-ion batteries for automotive application and stationary energy storage.
The lab experimental facilities are:
-experimental stations for automated characterization of performance, degradation and transport phenomena in single cell
-systems for local characterization by means of segmented cells and reference electrodes
-instrument for in-situ electrochemical characterization (EIS, CV, LSV)
-instrument for the analysis of gas composition
