Thesis type EXPEIRMENTAL, IN COMPANY
Description The goal of the master internship is to evaluate the feasibility of ceramic proton conducting cell industrialisation. This work is split into three main lines:
- evaluation of the most promising ceramic proton conducting cell architectures and materials through an exhaustive bibliographic research;
- experimental preparation of small and large area cell prototypes using laboratory and industrial equipment, refining vehicle composition and materials type and morhology;
- physico-chemical and electrochemical cell characterisation, to refine the concept design with further benchmarking it to a state-of-the-art solid oxide cell.
At the end of the internship, a valuable information will be collected on the status of ceramic proton conducting technology maturity and its manufacturability, in particular prior to its adoption by the industry.
