A micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) based thin-film fuel cells for electrical power applications. The MEMS-based fuel cell may be of a solid oxide type (SOFC), a solid polymer type (SPFC), or a proton exchange membrane type (PEMFC), and each fuel cell basically consists of an anode and a cathode separated by an electrolyte layer. Additionally catalyst layers can also separate the electrodes (cathode and anode) from the electrolyte. Gas manifolds are utilized to transport the fuel and oxidant to each cell and provide a path for exhaust gases. The el...
1. A fuel cell, operating in a temperature range of 50°-500° C., comprising: a fuel cell stack including at least a pair of electrodes, and an electrolyte having a thickness of about 1-2 μm separating said electrodes, said electrolyte composed of material selected from the group consisting of solid polymer, and proton exchange membrane materials; at least one substrate having a manifold formed therein, said at least one substrate for supplying fuel and an oxidant to opposite sides of said fuel cell stack, said manifold directing fuel to one side of s...
