Abstract: Electrically conductive meshes with pore sizes between about 20 and 3000 nanometers and with appropriately selected strand geometry can be used as engineered supports in electrodes to provide for improved performance in solid polymer electrolyte fuel cells. Suitable electrode geometries have essentially straight, parallel pores of engineered size. When used as a cathode, such electrodes can be expected to provide a substantial improvement in output voltage at a given current.
