Protonic Ceramic Fuel Cells (PCFCs) are considered an attractive energy conversion technology at low temperatures (400-600℃) by utilizing the low activation energy of proton conduction compared to oxygen ion conduction. Our group is focusing on increasing the electrode catalyst for proton ceramic fuel cells under low operating temperature conditions through the use of metal nanocatalyst exsolution technology.
Molten Carbonate Electrolysis Cells (MCECs) are regarded as a highly efficient hydrogen production electrolysis technology at 650°C. It has garnered significant attention owing to its environmental friendliness, economic viability, and versatility in utilizing various fuels. Our group is investigating the modification of the NiO electrode surface using nano-oxide particles through the dip-coating method, aiming to address Ni dissolution issues and enhance electrode activity.
