A hydrogen battery for mobile devices soon

A new crazy discovery , recently a group of researchers and scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) successfully managed to create an hydrogen based battery.

The hydrogen batteries use a new composite material by locking hydrogen into solids leading to a high-capacity magnesium nanocrystals encapsulated in a gas-barrier polymer matrix to create a new and revolutionary hydrogen storage composite material :
"Discovering new materials that could help us find a more sustainable energy solution is at the core of the Department of Energy's mission. Our lab provides outstanding experiments to support this mission with great success," says Kisielowski. "We confirmed the presence of hydrogen in this material through time-dependent spectroscopic investigations with the TEAM 0.5 microscope. This investigation suggests that even direct imaging of hydrogen columns in such materials can be attempted using the TEAM microscope."
"The unique nature of Berkeley Lab encourages cross-division collaborations without any limitations," said Jeon, now at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, whose postdoctoral work with Urban led to this publication.
