Graphene may revolutionize the world of renewable energy

Graphene could change the way the world makes use of hydrogen in the future. A team of researchers from Manchester University in the United Kingdomhave discovered a way to use this material to improve battery technology and produce hydrogen fuel from air. The research team believes that graphene could make fuel cells more attractive as it can be used to produce hydrogen in an inexpensive and relatively efficient manner.

Every second, your com­puter must process bil­lions of com­pu­ta­tional steps to pro­duce even the sim­plest out­puts. Imagine if every one of those steps could be made just a tiny bit more effi­cient. “It would save pre­cious nanosec­onds,” explained North­eastern Uni­v. assis­tant pro­fessor of physics Swastik Kar.

Kar and his col­league Yung Joon Jung, an asso­ciate pro­fessor in the Depart­ment of Mechan­ical and Indus­trial Engi­neering, have devel­oped a series of novel devices that do just that. Their work was pub­lished Sunday in the journal Nature Pho­tonics.
