Technologies enabling the electrochemically active components for the sustainable energy landscape of tomorrow

“As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Dr. Raphaëlle Satet, Senior Manager

I am a materials scientist by training and joined Bosch in 2005 to work first on ceramics design. Then, as a process engineer in Tilburg (NL), I developed manufacturing processes in cross-functional teams. Since 2015, I have worked as a senior manager in the field of energy storage and converters. Here, the challenge is all about linking the performance and reliability of electrochemically active components to microstructural design and processing.

Interview

Dr. Raphaëlle Satet

Senior Manager

“Please tell us what fascinates you most about research.”

Research is fascinating because it requires us to challenge daily what we understand and thus to challenge ourselves and each other in excellent teams to add that one piece to the puzzle of knowledge.

Dr. Raphaëlle Satet

Dr. Raphaëlle Satet

Senior Manager

“What makes research done at Bosch so special?”

First, the huge variety of topics, which results from the wide diversity of Bosch components. Our work is therefore all about linking various faculties (e.g. in my field, fluid dynamics to materials science and electrochemistry) in order to have a detailed, though comprehensive understanding of the cause–effect relationships on the performance of the component.

Next, our assignment “Bring up daring ideas for the business and components of tomorrow” – really deriving new ideas from the frontiers of science, and carrying them all the way down to actual applications with all the quality constraints which need to be met.

Finally, research at Bosch has the absolute specialty of being meant long-term: responding to the demands of society in 10 years from now, but also having the strength to stick to a topic and not give up at the first hurdle.

“What research topics are you currently working on at Bosch?”

I am currently working on fuel cells for both mobile and stationary applications. Our target is to develop environmentally friendly and affordable technical solutions for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and homes. Therefore, we translate the requirements from the applications to requirements on the cell and material level. Through a deep understanding of materials, electrochemistry, and transport phenomena, we develop the best technical solution that meets or even exceeds our customers’ expectations.

Dr. Raphaëlle Satet

“What are the biggest scientific challenges in your field of research?”

The main challenges in PEM fuel cells are water management, cheap and durable catalyst layers, and component design for mass manufacturability. The first two are directly related to my field of research: materials, electrochemistry, and transport phenomena. Our approach is to understand water management and efficient catalyst usage across scales to be able to design properties down to a microstructure level to meet requirements on a system level. We achieve this by coupling cutting-edge simulation methods at different scales and domains with advanced characterization methods on material, microstructure, and cell level.

Dr. Raphaëlle Satet

“How do the results of your research become part of solutions "Invented for life"?”

Enabling GHG-free mobility by making the fuel cell technology viable for the market … that would be really an inspiring manifestation of “Invented for life”.
