h i g h l i g h t s g r a p h i c a l a b s t r a c t The assembly and operation of a micro-power plant is successfully demonstrated. The micro-power plant consists of micro-SOFCs, a micro-reactor and a gas carrier. Above 470 C the system run thermally independent. The internal reformation of butane reached a H 2 yield of 60 at.%. An OCV of 1.0 V and a(More)
In this work, the potential of magnetron sputtered magnesium uoride (MgF 2) and MgF 2 containing composite coatings for coloured solar collector glazing is investigated. Coloured thin-lm interference coatings on the reverse side of the collector cover glass give solar collectors an aesthetic appearance, which facilitates their integration into the(More)
Low temperature micro-solid oxide fuel cell (micro-SOFC) systems are an attractive alternative power source for small-size portable electronic devices due to their high energy efficiency and density. Here, we report on a thermally self-sustainable reformer – micro-SOFC assembly. The device consists of a micro-reformer bonded to a silicon chip containing 30(More)
