Spectroscopic techniques are powerful non-destructive tools. They can add value to the production of proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC). We can use non-destructive analyses to monitor Nafion membranes, catalytic coatings, and other components of a membrane electrode assembly. 

During a presentation, hosted by PLUGVOLT, we will discuss X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, and near-infrared spectroscopy techniques that can be used for materials characterization in development and production. We will provide examples of applications measuring nanocatalyst size, nanocatalyst loading, membrane hydration, and more.

This webinar will focus on the following key topics: 

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