  1. 1. Hydrogen Impurities and Dislocations in Transition Metals

    Author : Björn von Sydow; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Motion of impurities and dislocations is essential for many material properties of metals. In the present thesis we have made use of different atomistic simulation techniques to study the behavior of hydrogen and edge dislocations in transition metals. We have carried out molecular-dynamics (MD) simulations for hydrogen diffusion in niobium. READ MORE

    Abstract : The proton exchange membrane fuel cell generates electricity from hydrogen and oxygen (from air) through electrocatalytic reactions in an electrochemical cell. The Pt/C catalyst, commonly used in PEM fuel cells, is very sensitive to impurities that can interact with the active catalyst sites and limit fuel cell performance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gyrokinetic simulations of microturbulence and transport in tokamak plasmas

    Author : Daniel Tegnered; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ITG; Joint European Torus; impurities; transport; fusion; TEM; tokamak; turbulence; plasma physics; gyrokinetics;

    Abstract : Fusion power is one of few viable and sustainable means of energy production. The tokamak is arguable the most mature technology to magnetically confine fusion plasmas. In these devices, heat and particle transport is dominated by small-scale turbulent fluctuations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electrochemical Reactions in Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells

    Author : Maria Wesselmark; Svein Sunde; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Fuel cell; model electrodes; oxygen reduction; methanol oxidation; formic acid oxidation; hydrogen oxidation; CO oxidation; degradation; tungsten oxide; carbon support; Bränslecell; modellelektroder; syrgasreduktion; metanoloxidation; myrsyraoxidation; vätgasoxidation; CO oxidation; degradering; wolfram oxid; kolsupport; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The polymer electrolyte fuel cell converts the chemical energy in a fuel, e.g. hydrogen or methanol, and oxygen into electrical energy. The high efficiency and the possibility to use fuel from renewable sources make them attractive as energy converters in future sustainable energy systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. Atomic Spectroscopy on Fusion Relevant Ions and Studies of Light Impurities in the JET Tokamak

    Author : Magnus Tunklev; Partikelfysik; []
