Description

Fuel Cell Research Laboratory in KIER (Korea Institute of Energy Research) have been conducting Fuel Cell research from 1981. Now Fuel Cell Research Lab. has 3 working groups (PEFC, SOFC and DMFC). In this time, the position at the PEFC group is opened. The main interests are in the electrocatalysis.

- Development of High performance and Durable electrocatalysts
– Non-carbon based support material for electrocatalysts
– Highly graphitized support material for electrocatalysts.
– Non-PGM & low PGM electrocatalysts.
PGM & Non-PGM core containing Core-Shell electrocatalysts.
MEA (Membrane Electrode Assembly) evaluation.
