Low energy plasma treatment of Nafion membranes for PEM fuel cells

Ramdutt, Devien; Charles, Christine; Hudspeth, Jessica; Ladewig, Bradley; Gengenbach, Thomas; Boswell, Roderick; Dicks, Andrew; Brault, Pascal


Understanding the effects plasmas have on polymer electrolyte membranes such as Nafion is important if plasma technologies are to be employed in the fabrication of MEA components. An argon plasma has been used to treat the surface of Nafion membranes at several energy doses from 0 to 3.056 J cm-2. The effect of the treatment has been characterised using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) as well as measuring water contact...[Show more]
