This work was led by prof. Smeacetto from Politecnico di Torino and included a broad international collaboration with industrial participation.
In this work the PoliTo group has electrophoretically deposited spinel coatings on full scale interconnects (Sunfire). The interconnects were subsequently used in stacks and analyzed post-mortem.

I am a researcher working in materials science, mainly with ceramic materials but also with metalic alloys. I focus on deposition techniques (electrophoretic, electrolytic, spray-pyrolysis) and a few different applications (fuel cells, electrolysis).
