Abstract
This Phase I STTR program will develop and test anode supported, low temperature, protonic solid electrolyte fuel cell (AS-LT-PSOFC) with high electrochemical efficiency, high degree of hydrogen (H) utilization, low operating temperature, and reversible operation characteristics. The novel proton-conducting fuel cell technology pursued in this project has improved electrochemical efficiency derived from using a highly porous anode support design and a very thin hybrid protonic electrolyte.
