Fuel Cells' Technical Principle, Promise and Challenges
Wednesday, December 25 | 10 a.m.-12 p.m. | Castle Air Museum, 5050 Santa Fe Drive, Atwater
UC Merced Professor Min Hwan Lee will speak on "Fuel Cells: Technical Principle, Promise and Challenges" at the next event in the Frontiers in Science Lecture Series.
A fuel cell is a clean-energy-conversion device that generates electricity directly from chemical energies. Hydrogen is usually considered as its fuel, but other natural gas and alcohols can be fuel as well. As demand for clean, sustainable and cheap alternatives to coal and petroleum surges, fuel cells have been intensively studied. In the presentation, a brief overview on the operational principles of fuel cells, their promise and current challenges will be discussed.
Lee is a professor with the School of Engineering. His research group employs a range of fabrication and characterization technologies to build and evaluate small-scale prototype structures for next-generation energy and memory devices. He obtained his Ph.D. from Stanford University, and his bachelor's of science from Seoul National University in Korea.
