Abstract

The design of the Thin Film Fuel Cell (TFFC) as proposed and detailed by C. Dyer (U. S. patents 4,863,813; 4,988,582; 5,094,928) is significantly different from conventional polymer electrolytic membrane (PEM) fuel cells. The TFFC impermeable solid substrate design operates in a mixed fuel/oxidant gas environment.
