‘Artificial diamonds’ to make fuel cells more affordable

By / May 14, 2010

The DOE Pulse reported that, using specialized cubic zirconia, scientists from Nanjing Normal University in China and Pacific Northwest National Lab created a membrane that could drop the temperature inside solid oxide fuel cells. Lowering the temperature means these cells could be built from less expensive materials. Currently, the temperature inside SOFCs is about 1,000°C.…
