Degradation Process in Hydrogen Fuel Cells

This project proposes to extend our NASA funded research to study the basic chemistry and physical processes involved in degradation mechanisms within proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells. These studies will help determine relative fuel cell lifetimes, information necessary to maximize them, and the identification of degradation processes. The project further proposes to continue to involve students in meaningful research, thereby better preparing them for future careers in the rapidly changing transportation industry.
