Unique structural fluctuations at ice surface promote autoionization of water molecules

Direct experimental evidence for markedly enhanced surface proton activity inherent to water ice

02-Apr-2020

Water ice is one of the most abundant solid substances in nature and hydrated protons on the ice surfaces critically influence physical and chemical properties of ices. Hydrated protons are easily doped into the hydrogen-bond (HB) networks when acidic impurities are present. In contrast, in pure ...

Innovative thinner electrolyte can improve functioning of solid oxide fuel cells

Scientists have synthesized a new thin film that could make energy production more efficient and cleaner

27-Mar-2020

In this post-industrialization age, electricity has become the backbone of our society. However, using fossil fuels to generate it is not the best option because of their limited availability and harmful nature. In the last two decades, significant efforts have been made to develop techniques to ...
