This technology is related to a method for coating nanofibres with uniform metal coatings to provide electrodes with high structural stability and surface area that are to be used in fuel cells.
This technology developed by Sabanci University researchers provides a simple method for production of uniformly metalized nanofibers that may serve as high surface area electrodes. 'Electro spinning' technique at ambient conditions is applied in the technology therefore the process is time energy and cost efficient. The end product is a high quality consistently metalized high surface area nanofiber. Also many types of metals such as Ag Pd or Ni may be used to coat the nanofibers.
