Listed here is the UC Merced Thermal and Electrochemical Laboratory (TEEL) equipment:

Fuel Cells

25 and 2 cm2 Fuel Cell with precise compression load control and liquid cooled cell temperature control.

Test Station

Customized Greenlight Innovation Fuel Cell Test Station capable of testing LT and HT PEM fuel cells up to 50 cm2, liquid-cooled cell module, fully automated temperature, pressure, RH controls with water collection.

Gamry

High-performance Gamry Reference 3000 Potentiostat/Galvanostat/ZRA for accurate electrochemical and Impedance spectroscopy measurements. The Reference 3000 is a high-current, high-performance potentiostat well-suited for researchers studying batteries, fuel cells or supercapacitors. It is also well suited for general physical electrochemistry experiments requiring high voltages and high currents. For very high current applications, the Reference 3000 can be interfaced with the Reference 30K Booster.
