New, simplified technique makes light metallic nanofoam



Davis CA (SPX) Nov 06, 2017
A simple method for manufacturing extremely low-density palladium nanofoams could help advance hydrogen storage technologies, reports a new study from the University of California, Davis. A nanofoam is what it sounds like - a foamy version of some material, filled with very small pores. First introduced about 20 years ago, metallic nanofoams have potential for diverse applications. The porous structures are strong and lightweight - like their natural counterparts of bone and cork. Palladium and ce ... read more
