Practicality of the Convolutional Solution Method of the Polarization Estimation Inverse Problem for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

Abstract A specific species of the genus Geobacter exhibits useful electrical properties when processing a molecule often found in waste water. A team at ASU including Dr Cèsar Torres and Dr Sudeep Popat used that species to create a special type of solid oxide fuel cell we refer to as a microbial fuel cell. Identification of possible chemical processes and properties of the reactions used by the Geobacter are investigated indirectly by taking measurements using Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy of the electrode-electrolyte interface of the microbial fuel cell to obtain the value of the fuel cell's complex impedance at specific frequencies. Investigation of the multiple polarization processes which give rise to measured impedance values is ... (more)
