Power On Demand from Aluminum and Water

Power On Demand from Aluminum and Water

July 8, 2019

Imagine a squad of future Soldiers on a long range patrol far from base with dead batteries and a desperate need to fire up their radio. One of the Soldiers reaches for a metal tablet and drops it into a container and adds water. Immediately the tablet starts to dissolve and hydrogen is released into a fuel cell. And just like that, the radio has power. This is not science fiction. This is something scientists at the U.S. Army CCDC Army Research Laboratory have figured out how to do. It’s a disruptive discovery that could change everything! Listen in on a conversion with Dr. Kris Darling and Dr. Anit Giri, both materials scientists at the lab's Weapons and Materials Research Directorate at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland.
