Our laboratories offer the following infrastructure:

  • Test benches for the characterisation of PEM electrolysis cells up to a size of 25 cm2, pressure range on the side of anodes and cathodes variable between 1 and 50 bar
  • Test benches for the characterisation of AEL electrolysis cells up to a size of 100 cm2, pressure range between 1 and 30 bar
  • Test benches for the characterisation of oxide-ceramic electrolysis cells (SOEC) and stacks for water electrolysis and co-electrolysis up to a size of 16 cm2 (short stacks up to 100 cm2) and an output of 5 kW, temperature range between 600 and 1100 °C
  • Different test cells for the characterisation of cell components
  • Test cell for spatially distributed current density measurement on a length of 50 cm
  • Potentiostats, impedance measuring devices for electrochemical characterisation
  • Gas analysis for permeation measurement
  • Atomic force microscope (AFM)
  • Micro and nano computer tomography
  • REM, EDX, FIB-REM
  • Different measuring devices for the physical characterisation of materials
