ACMiN 2Research profile

The Fuel Cell Research group is particularly interested in solid oxide fuel cells as one of the most effective energy conversion devices yet invented. The research framework of the group was established on 6 December 2016 by the Scientific Council of the Academic Center of Materials and Nanotechnology. The group scientific interest focuses on the development of new solutions in the field of manufacturing and testing Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC). The scientific insights derived from the research of the group impact the design of electrodes, fuel cell control systems, and thermal management. Group works on the search for novel materials and the optimization of their structural parameters, both in micro and macro scale. The group collaborates extensively with other research centers and universities around the world most of all with Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan and Shibaura Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan.
