Project Description

This project will develop an integrated sensor solution to perform direct and simultaneous measurements of chemical reaction and temperature in SOFC with 5-mm spatial resolution. The project will measure the internal hydrogen consumption rate with 5-mm spatial resolution at very high temperature from 600 to 800ºC, test hydrogen sensors in solid oxide fuel cell in the high-temperature fuel cell testing facility in Morgantown WV, and determine the range and continuity of the refractive index tenability with Pluronic F-127.

Project Benefits

Development of highly-stable physical-based sensor for highly reactive gas streams for fossil-based power plant applications and demonstration in real-time, multi-species flue gas measurements at high temperatures from 400 to 800ºC using one fiber.
