Duration: 01.04.2021 - 31.03.2025


Development of novel, highly scalable production processes for the large-scale production of electrolyzers, further development of industrial production processes for electrolyzers


Research Topics IMWS

Characterization of electrolyser components and systems, identification of relevant microstructural defects and analysis of their influence on performance, as well as the development of suitable concepts for their cost-effective avoidance or minimization

Testing and development of concepts for in-line analysis and defect identification



Accompanying analysis during component production (CCM, BPP, PTL, stack) with a focus on in-line and operando suitability, identification of relevant defects in production



SEM, TEM, EDX, CT, XRD, XPS, ToF-SIMS, IR-Spectroscopy, magnetic field measurement, lock-in thermography, LIBS
