- Lower Temp. Breakthrough in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells - SOFCs usually run hot -- as high as 1000° C. Researchers at CalTech have achieved a run temperature of 600° C, which will also help bring price down. (PhysOrg; Oct. 15, 2004)
- Cool Fuel Cells Could Revolutionize Earth's Energy Resources - University of Houston breakthrough in thin film SOFCs enables more efficient (65%) and compact energy generation capacity. A unit the size of two cans of soda would produce more than 5 kW, enough to power a typical household. (SpaceDaily; July 23, 2004)
- New Technology Heralds Smaller, Cooler Fuel Cells - New technology in thin film solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) currently being refined at the University of Houston (UH) could make cheap, efficient fuel cells a reality. Originating from research at UH's Texas Center for Superconductivity and Advanced Materials (TcSAM), these SOFCs of the "thin film" variety are both efficient and compact.
