Significant research is still needed in developing, understanding and optimizing materials for fuel cell components. One of the most important areas under investigation is the role that porosity plays in the performance of the individual solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) components and finished stack.
Gas pycnometry and powder displacement techniques can help ceramic manufacturers quickly, easily and accurately analyze product quality.
Ceramic products are designed to meet certain performance criteria based on the needs of the application, and it is the responsibility of manufacturing and quality operations to ensure that the final goods meet those criteria.
Our June issue includes features focusing on ceramic medical/dental applications, building-integrated photovoltaics challenges and opportunities, analytical challenges, and the new OSHA silica rule. Check it out today!
