Nanostack printing for materials research
The EU-funded NANOSTACKS project (H2020-EU.1.2.2.) has found a solution to overcome the difficulty of storing this energy in very large quantities and in high energy density. The solution is a novel screening method to find efficient fuel cells that rely on cost-efficient materials. It will use a robot to print battery, fuel cell and LED materials as well as conductors, isolators and diodes, and screen some 15 000 twin nanostacks per glass slide for function. According to the project, this new method will not only lead to novel energy materials but greatly advance materials research in general.
