Researchers develop lower-cost, more efficient nanostructure for fuel cells
To create a fuel cell that would be more efficient, more durable and less expensive to produce, the researchers used a surface engineering technique called “surface doping,” in which they added a third metal called molybdenum to the surface of platinum-nickel nanostructures. The change made the alloy surface more stable and prevented the loss of nickel and platinum over time.
