Direct NaBH4/H2O2 fuel cells
Advanced NaBH4/H2O2 Fuel Cell for Space Applications
Fuel cells have played an important role in NASA’s space program starting with the Gemini space program. However, improved fuel cell performance will be needed to enable demanding future missions. An
H2O2-Based Fuel Cells for Space Power Systems
A new type of fuel cell (FC) using novel fuel and oxidizer is investigated in this research. H2O2 is used in this unique FC directly at the cathode. Two types of reactant, namely a gasphase hydrogen
Ragone Plot Comparison of Radioisotope Cells and the Direct Sodium Borohydride/Hydrogen Peroxide Fuel Cell With Chemical Batteries
Radioisotope cells (RCs) and a direct sodium borohydride/hydrogen peroxide fuel cell ( FC) are compared to conventional chemical batteries through Ragone plots of theoretical (RCs) and experimental
In Situ Atomic Force Microscopy of the Electrochemical Dissolution of a Copper Grain
Dynamic evolution of the submicrometer surface morphology of a copper grain undergoing electrodissolution in the “electroetching regime” has been monitored by in situ atomic force microscopy. Image...
A Nanopore Multilayer Isotope Battery Using Radioisotopes from Nuclear Wastes
Nuclear (“isotope”) batteries of various sorts based on a variety of radioisotopes have been studied for over 50 years. They can play a mission-critical role when other power sources cannot fulfill
Hydrogen-Peroxide-Based Fuel Cells for Space Power Systems
A fuel cell using nontraditional fuel and oxidizer is investigated in this research. H 2 O 2 is used in this unique fuel cell directly at the cathode. Two types of reactant, namely, a gas-phase
