Solid Oxide Fuel Cells by Thermal Spray

Fuel cells are electrochemical devices which can directly convert chemical energy into electrical energy.

The high efficiency and fuel flexibility make Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) an attractive choice for energy conversion systems. Development of SOFCs with low production costs is still a challenging task. Thermal spray provides a major advantage in this case owing to high deposition rates and easier automation of the process and thus, lower costs.

Dr. Mohit Gupta, Lector in Production Technology at University West, explains this novel method and its benefits.
