Solid polymer fuel cell synthesis by low pressure plasmas: a short review

Brault, P.; Roualdès, S.; Caillard, A.; Thomann, A.-L.; Mathias, J.; Durand, J.; Coutanceau, C.; Léger, J.-M.; Charles, C.; Boswell, R.


In this review, we report on the use of low pressure plasmas for elaborating materials at the heart of solid polymer fuel cells (SPFC), especially electrodes and the membrane electrolyte. Electrodes are formed using plasma sputtering techniques while the ion conducting membranes are built up using plasma polymerization. Fuel cell performance will be improved by these approaches. The electrode catalyst profile is optimized while membrane working temperature is increased and methanol crossover is...[Show more]
