These papers are based on presentations prepared for the symposium
Materials in Clean Power Systems II: Fuel Cells, Solar, and
Hydrogen-Based Technologies. The original symposium description is
as follows: "Energy security, continued environmental concerns
about traditional power generation plants, and greater technical
and political interests in the merits of a hydrogen-based economy
have spurred a dramatic worldwide growth in research and
development activities associated with clean power technologies.
Such technologies may include, but are not limited to, various fuel
cell systems (PEMFC, SOFC, and MCFC), hydrogen combustion equipment
(IC engines and gas turbines), solar/photovoltaics, and hydrogen
generation equipment including electrolyzers, reformers, and
membrane-based separation reactors.With an eye toward overall
system development and its commercialization, there has been
increased focus on both cell materials and the structural materials
employed for a variety of components in these power systems. These
materials and components are often performed in unique environments
during system operation and their stability is essential in
attaining high system power, efficiency, and reliability. This
symposium will focus on both the scientific and technological
aspects of the materials used in these systems, particularly on new
materials development, materials degradation and interactions with
environments, and clean power applications where these materials
find their use. The symposium will provide a forum for scientists
and engineers from academia, national laboratories, and industry to
present the latest developments and understandings in materials for
applications in clean power systems.In addition, the symposium will
provide a venue for the fruitful interaction and exchange of ideas.
It will also educate students and researchers interested in
nationally and globally important areas of fuel cells, solar, and
hydrogen-based technologies. Proposed session topics include:
structural materials for applications such as interconnections,
sealing and packaging in fuel cells (SOFCs, MCFCs, PEMFCs, and
others); materials for electrodes and electrolytes in
electrochemical cells; materials employed in non-fuel cell related
clean power systems, e.g. hydrogen-base IC and turbine systems;
balance of plant materials used in clean power generation
equipment; materials and material issues in hydrogen production,
and gas (e.g. H2 and O2) separation; materials for solar
cells/photovoltaic systems; corrosion, materials degradation in
fuel cells and other clean power systems, and their protection; and
fundamental thermodynamics, transport properties and modeling.
