New published paper: "A lung-inspired printed circuit board polymer electrolyte fuel cell"
04 November 2019
CNIE in collaboration with the Electrochemical Innovation lab (EIL) have published a new paper in the reputed Energy Conversion and Management Journal titled "A lung-inspired printed circuit board polymer electrolyte fuel cell".
The paper focuses on the fabrication of a lung-inspired cathode flow field using low-cost, lightweight printed circuit boards (PCB). The paper compares the the efficiency of this fabrication method for the fractal cathode flow field to a previous, more expensive “metal 3D printing” method that used selective laser sintering. Authors of the paper include current CNIE researchers, Sasank (Viswanath) Bethapudi, Panos Trogadas, Jason Cho, Dan Brett & Marc-Olivier Coppens amongst other collaborators. The work was partly supported by EPSRC and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
