CLEMSON — Cars that go more than 1,000 miles on a single fill-up and smartphones that can run for days without recharging are among the possibilities that could come out of a new Clemson University research project that brings together 3D printing and laser processing. Jianhua “Joshua” Tong and his team are working on a new 3D-printing technique involving rapid laser processing to create “protonic ceramic electrolyzer stacks” that convert electricity to hydrogen as a way of storing energy. The electrolyzers could have several uses, including as a fuel source in cars or to store energy generated from solar and wind power. The new laser 3D-printing technique would reduce the cost and time of manufacturing […]
