Ceramics for Fuel Cells
Ceramics are ideal for use in elevated temperature environments, such as solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). Whether you are trying to design and optimize an electrolyte or an electrical insulation system, utilize Lucideon's advanced knowledge of ceramics to develop and optimize material properties and ceramic sintering techniques.
The properties of ceramics may be tailored to optimize operating temperatures, conductivity, electrochemical performance, thermal shock resistance, reliability, geometry and dimensions.
Examples of applications include:
- Replacing metallic components with ceramics to improve performance in high-temperature and corrosive environments
- Tailoring surface and ceramic matrix properties to increase the rate of desired chemical reactions, desulfurization and filtration
- Developing multi-material, layered interconnects, electrodes and seals.
