Technical Informatio


We introduce the fuel cell evaluation technology of FC-Cubic. A general cell configuration of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell installed in such as fuel cell vehicles is two catalyst layers in which hydrogen and oxygen react respectively, an electrolyte membrane, gas diffusion layers (GDL), and separators. This minimal configuration is a single cell.Actual fuel cell vehicles are equipped with stacked cells which a lot of the single cells stack, while we are mainly studying the performance of the catalyst and the polymer electrolyte membrane using fuel cells in a single-cell state. To evaluate a fuel cell in a power generation test, we assemble an test cell by preparing a membrane electrode assembly (MEA) consisting of the catalyst layers, the electrolyte membrane, and the GDL, which are described above. We introduce these MEA preparation technologies and fuel cell evaluation technologies for each item.
