The Most Promising Storage Method

Thank you all for your informative presentations. We have come to understand much about the methods of storing hydrogen. It seems appropriate not to completely invest solely in one technology, as each method has its benefits as well as drawbacks.

Compressed hydrogen is a reasonable method for long term storage, as it requires no energy to maintain compression. It does seem unlikely, however, that each automobile have a compression system and large volume tanks on board.

Liquid hydrogen is also very feasible for storage, as it demands less volume than gaseous hydrogen. There is a large maintenance fee to keep a refrigeration system constantly running, so automobile implementation is not so likely as well.

Concerning the methods not currently available, yet very promising, all three are likely to be the standard method of storage in individual vehicles, though novel breakthroughs in research must be made before their wide scale debut. It cannot be predicted which technology will breakthrough first, though we must remain persistent in our research efforts, as the importance of alternative fuels and clean energy cannot be stressed enough.

It is imperative that no one method be considered superior and others excluded, as each storage method is unique and beneficial in its own regard. On behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy I would like to thank you for joining us today, and have a pleasant afternoon.

there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
