Description

The structure of fuel cells, polyelectrolyte membranes, catalysts, and related materials, including the water distribution perpendicular to the plane of the membrane, are measured using neutron reflectometry and correlated to function. We utilize in-situ active electrochemical control and/or control of relative humidity (including liquid water).
