Researchers look inside fuel cells to prevent oxidation

One issue that impacts the lifetime of the fuel cell is the oxidation, or breakdown, of its central electrolyte membrane. The process leads to formation of holes in the membrane and can ultimately cause a chemical short circuit. An engineering team at Washington University in St. Louis found a new way to better understand this. [...]
