JOURNAL PUBLICATION

Website

A journal paper about fuel cell has been published in Journal of Power Sources 2019. SuperbIN is one of the coauthors of this paper.

Abstract:

Although nanoporous Pt film has been shown to be an effective catalyst for polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells, the maximum power density of the cell is limited by the optimal film thickness. When the Pt film thickness exceeds the optimal value, regions with good gas transport (the side near the gas diffusion layer (GDL)) separate from regions with good proton transport (the side near the PEM), so the current density and the power density drop with increasing film thickness. Here we demonstrate that this obstacle can be overcome by laser micro-machining the GDL. The picosecond laser fabricates grooves on the GDL surface to greatly increase the effective surface area for Pt deposition, thereby reducing the local Pt film thickness. A nearly two-fold increase in the power density is achieved by using laser micro-machined periodic grooves of 20 μm depth, reaching a 0.6-V power density of 853 mW cm−2 and a maximum power density of 1.2 W cm−2 with a cathode Pt loading of 200 μg cm−2. The results also indicate that further enhancement may be achieved by increasing the surface modulation depth/period ratio and by implementing a better way to fill the grooves with polymer electrolyte.
