Ic-SECM – Bipolar Plates – Scanning Probes – Application Note 23

Latest updated: June 5, 2020

Bipolar Plates (BPP) are key components of fuel cell stacks, which should be understood for the better design of fuel cell design and manufacture. Intermittent Contact – Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (ic-SECM) has been used to examine the local electrochemical activity of a series of three BPP. By visualizing the local electrochemical activity it was possible to determine the distribution of conductive particles throughout the BPP.
