Azure Dynamics Corporation is incorporated under the laws of Alberta, Canada having been spun out of BC Research Inc. Azure now is headquartered in Oak Park, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. The company's principal business is in the development and integration of its proprietary electric and hybrid electric drive technology, primarily for the light and heavy duty commercial vehicle categories.Due to financial difficulties, Azure filed for bankruptcy protection in the Supreme Court of British Columbia in March 2012, and production of the Transit Connect Electric van and Balance hybrid was stopped.

This work reports the development of a novel high temperature, optically-accessed experimental facility and optical methods for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) research at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Vibrational Raman spectroscopy is applied to determine the flow-wise distributions of key gaseous species in a model Direct Internal Reforming (DIR) SOFC reformer fuelled with methane at operating temperatures of 600 and 700 °C. This work describes key aspects of the rig design for high temperature operation and details the in-situ calibration methodology developed to allow results to be reported in terms of mole fraction. A sample set of experimental results is presented and discussed. Elements of the reformer design and the operating characteristics of the apparatus that directly influence the results are identified. Potential applications of the apparatus are described. © 2011, Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source
