Controlled Porosity and Surface Coatings for Advanced Gas Diffusion Layers

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the Department of Energy to develop a low cost manufacturing process for advanced fuel cell components.

Polymer electrolyte fuel cells are a leading candidate to replace internal combustion engines for light duty vehicles, but their performance is below current targets. The gas diffusion layers in the fuel cell are one component that limits the performance. These limits can be addressed by structuring porosity in the gas diffusion layers to enhance transport mechanisms and provide greater durability.
