Infrastructure - Hydrogen - NTNU Team Hydrogen - NTNU Energy
NTNU Hydrogen Labs
NTNU has excellent state-of-the-art hydrogen and fuel cell laboratories and equipment, for example: Potentiostats/galvanostats, Photoelectrochemical and Sonoelectrochemical devices, PEMFC/AWE/PEMWE/Battery Test-stations, Electrochemical FTIR and Raman, Electrochemical AFM/STM, DEMS, UV-vis PMRS, Microfluidic flow cells, Scanning Probe Microscope (AFM/STM), FTIR spectrometer, UV-vis, Advanced electrochemical equipment (RDE, DEIS, DEMS, EQCM), Ultrasonic devices (baths, probes & US-spray) etc.
The infrastructure is run by a staff of 9 engineers and operated according to hands-on principles. NTNU NanoLab has 700 m2 cleanroom facilities with cleanliness ranging from ISO7 to ISO5 and vibration reduced zones at VCF-level. The cleanroom is also built according to GMO laboratory class 2 requirements.
NTNU Nanomechanical Lab
The Nanomechanical lab specialises in techniques for investigating the deformation and degradation of materials, interfacial mechanics and adhesion, and interactions between materials on the nanoscale. Detailed experimental investigations are supported by simulations involving ab-initio calculations, molecular dynamics and finite element methods. The lab is equipped with a variety of instruments for nanomechanical and nanotribological testing.
Norwegian fuel cell and hydrogen centre
The Norwegian fuel cell and hydrogen centres main goal is to be an operative centre of advanced laboratories with the required instrumentation and personnel to facilitate high quality research and development of components and testing and validation of systems for fuel cells and electrolysers.
The centre is a joint initiative taken by three major Norwegian R&D stakeholders (NTNU, SINTEF and IFE), are engaged in Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH) technologies and has a clear nation-wide character and impact.
