There are always ways to improve. Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) production can be improved by utilizing spectroscopic techniques. With these non-destructive techniques we can monitor Nafion membranes, catalytic coatings, and other components of a membrane electrode assembly.

During a presentation, hosted by PlugVolt, our in-house specialist will discuss three  spectroscopy techniques for materials characterization in development and production. Join us to get examples of applications measuring nanocatalyst size, nanocatalyst loading, membrane hydration, and more.

Key areas covered:

  • X-ray diffraction
  • X-ray fluorescence
  • Near infrared spectroscopy
  • At-line characterization


  • Scott Speakman Ph.D. – Principal Scientist – Malvern Panalytical

Who should attend?

  • Anyone interested in fuel cells and the importance of quality analysis. Several techniques will be presented with a focus on the catalyst coated membraes, X-ray diffraction & X-ray fluorescence, near infrared spectroscopy and at-line characterization.
