This paper reports the design, fabrication and characterization of high performance miniaturized micro direct methanol fuel cells (microDMFC) functioning at room temperature under a forced low input fuel flow rate (<10 µL min−1) fabricated using silicon microsystems techniques. A room temperature maximum power output of 12.5 mW cm−2 has been measured at a fuel flow rate of 5.52 µL min−1 for a fuel cell surface area as small as 0.3 cm2 (corresponding to a fuel use efficiency of 14.1% at 300 K…
