Micro fuel cell


This invention realizes a micro fuel cell with a simplified structure that is capable of effective power generation without using an electrolyte membrane, by mounting the anode and the cathode adjacent to each other on the same surface of the same substrate. It can provide more miniaturized fuel cells, and is useful as the power source for micro devices. Moreover, once it has been integrated it is expected to be used as a power source for general electronic devices.
