• Conductive epoxy/carbon nanofiber coatings for scale control 

      Edvardsen, Laura; Grandcolas, Mathieu; Lædre, Sigrid; Yang, Juan; Lange, Torstein; Bjørge, Ruben; Gawel, Kamila (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is one of the most widespread scaling minerals and has been a long-standing problem within many industrial sectors. Scaling of calcium carbonate on conductive surfaces can be prevented electrochemically ...
    • In-Situ Monitoring of Interfacial Contact Resistance in PEM Fuel Cells 

      McCay, Katie; Lædre, Sigrid; Martinsen, Stig-Yngve; Smith, Graham; Barnett, Alejandro Oyarce; Fortin, Patrick (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      A new in situ method for measuring the interfacial contact resistance between the bipolar plate and gas diffusion layer of an operating PEM Fuel Cell has been developed. This method involves the insertion of probe wires, ...
    • Issues regarding bipolar plate-gas diffusion layer interfacial contact resistance determination 

      Lædre, Sigrid; Craciunescu, Corneliu M.; Khoza, Thulile; Vaszilcsin, Nicolae; Kellenberger, Andrea; Bolocan, Vlad; Mitelea, Ion; Ercuta, Aurel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      The interfacial contact resistance (ICRBPP-GDL) between the bipolar plates (BPPs) and gas diffusion layers (GDLs) plays a major role in proton exchange membrane-fuel cells (PEMFCs) efficiency. Accordingly, materials selection ...
    • Measuring In Situ Interfacial Contact Resistance in a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell 

      Lædre, Sigrid; Kongstein, Ole Edvard; Ødegård, Anders; Seland, Frode; Karoliussen, Håvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Interfacial contact resistance (ICR) is one of the remaining hurdles for successful implementation of stainless steel bipolar plates in PEM fuel cells. We have developed a reliable method, using thin gold wires, to measure ...
    • Review of asphaltenes in an electric field 

      Farooq, Umer; Lædre, Sigrid; Gawel, Kamila (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Asphaltenes are regarded as troublesome components of crude oils as their precipitation and deposition inside production wells and downstream infrastructure often result in a reduction of production capacity and, in critical ...
