Physicochemical Fuel Cell Laboratory

The Physicochemical Fuel Cell Laboratory develops and applies analytical methods for the in situ and/or spatially resolved analysis of structures and effects. More: Physicochemical Fuel Cell Laboratory …


Measuring Technology

Verifying each R&D approach requires a measuring technique tailored to the specific development and the processes involved. More: Measuring Technology …


Modeling and Simulation

In modeling fuel cell stacks, strong non-linear coupled processes should be taken into account on different spatial and time scales. These different scales mean that it is not possible to use just one single modeling approach. More: Modeling and Simulation …
