    Non-Destructive Characterization of Catalyst Coated Membranes for Fuel Cells

    Spectroscopic techniques are powerful non-destructive tools to monitor Nafion membranes, catalytic coatings, and other components of a membrane electrode assembly during production of proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC). This presentation will discuss X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, and near-infrared spectroscopy techniques that can be used for materials characterization in development and production. Applications measuring nanocatalyst size, nanocatalyst loading, membrane hydration, and more will be provided as examples.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Proton-exchange membrane fuel cell
    • X-ray diffraction
    • X-ray fluorescence
    • Near infrared spectroscopy
    • At-line characterization
