As part of the NEDO project, Tokyo Institute of Technology has successfully developed the world's first technology capable of visualizing, in real-time and in high-resolution, the behaviors of the water produced inside operating fuel cells. As a result of this breakthrough, it is now possible to observe the behavior of the water produced in fuel cells for automobiles which often experience drastic changes in reactions. The technology is expected to accelerate improvements in fuel cells that will enable higher performance and better durability and to accelerate technology development that will contribute to new design guidelines.
