Abstract:

Proton conducting materials provide a new way to convert energy, be it from a electrochemical potential, as with fuel cells or from a thermodynamic potential, which is what we are designing our materials to utilize. Using scalable methods, we hope to create a multilayer device that can be used to effectively conduct protons. To do this we hope to print nickel catalyst layers and phosphate based proton conduction films, one on top of another.
