Abstract

In this work we report on realization of enhanced proton (H+) conductivity in extendednanochannels (ENCs) in a micro-fuel cell (μ-FC) device fabricated in combination with fused silica and LiNbO3 (LN) ferroelectric materials. Here we are demonstrating how to control nanospace surface potential in a μ-FC device via spontaneous polarization of a LN material, which results in H+ attraction to the nanochannels surface and its acceleration.
