Washington State University (WSU) researchers have developed a new way to make low-cost, single-atom catalysts for fuel cells. The advance that could make important clean energy technology more economically viable. The team’s study results have been published in the journal Advanced Energy Materials. Hydrogen fuel cells will be critical for a hydrogen fueled energy economy […]

University of Innsbruck, Austria, scientists and colleagues have now devised a method of using copper as a catalyst in the reaction designed to split water and produce hydrogen in gaseous form. The new model explains interactions between small copper clusters used as low-cost catalysts in the production of hydrogen by breaking down water molecules. Copper […]

Queen Mary University of London scientists have developed a material with spring like energy storage. The biological equivalent would be the feet of animals like eagles and even fleas. They can store energy in their feet without having to continuously contract their muscles to then jump high or hold on to prey. The Queen Mary […]

University of Alberta scientists have created the most dense, solid-state memory in history that could soon exceed the capabilities of current hard drives by 1,000 times. The new technique leads to the densest solid-state memory ever created. Roshan Achal, PhD student in Department of Physics and lead author on the new research said, “Essentially, you […]

University of Oxford researchers have found a new class of materials called halide double perovskites may have just the right properties to split water. In a process called photocatalytic water splitting, sunlight separates water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen and oxygen can then be recombined in a fuel cell to release energy. According to […]
