Increased impact from UK Research Council supported hydrogen and/or fuel cell research

Prof Bill David

Dr Martin Owen Jones

This project enables UK hydrogen and fuel cell researchers to design and commission specialist sample environments for use at ISIS. These sample environments are designed to perform simultaneous neutron scattering and functional property measurements of hydrogen and fuel cell materials and systems, under regimes of temperature, pressure and environment that most closely approximate to real-world application conditions.

ISIS will collaborate directly with both existing and new H2FC SUPERGEN users of ISIS to design experiments, including the development of novel sample environments. Enhanced characterisation facilities for the community will lead to considerable advances in the understanding of hydrogen storage and fuel cell materials, which, in turn, will lead to the development of new materials, system designs and architectures and, ultimately, improved performance.
