Eugene Smotkin presents Operando IR and Raman Spectroscopy of the Catalyst-Ionomer Interface: July 27, 2016 DOE Catalysis Working Group Meeting

NuVant commercializes Operando IR, Raman and X-ray absorption spectroscopy cells with Northeastern University co-ops and graduate students. The Smotkin group has been developing fuel cell operando spectroscopy for over twenty years.  Smotkin will present “Operando IR and Raman Spectroscopy of the Catalyst-Ionomer Interface at the DOE Catalysis Working Group Meeting on July 27, 2016 at Argonne National Laboratory. Recent fuel cell operando spectroscopy publications include:
