redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Penn State researchers have created a new, cost-effective polymer membrane that decreases the cost of alkaline batteries and fuel cells by replacing costly platinum catalysts without sacrificing performance. "We have tried to break this paradigm of tradeoffs in materials (by improving) both the stability and the conductivity of this membrane at the same time, and that is what we were able to do with this unique polymeric materials...

Article in the journal 'Applied Physics Letters' shows how to boost performance for commonly used devices The mineral molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), which, when solid, behaves in many ways like grease, has semiconducting properties that make it a promising alternative to silicon or graphene in electronic devices. It also strongly absorbs visible light, and so it has been widely employed in light-sensing photodetectors, which are used in a wide range of technologies, such as environmental...
