Thanks, Greg. I understand what you mean about platinum. Sometimes in research there's a great discovery or breakthrough, but the materials make it too expensive commercially so altneratives must be found before the technology makes it to prime time. This time the cheaper alternative was one of the things that made the discovery significant.

I know what you mean, Chuck, but with all the technologies that we both have been writing about, it seems like one of these thrown against the wall has got to stick eventually.

Thanks for the informative article which shows this new breakthrough.  I was especially encouraged by the use of an alternative material to platinum, which will should someday be more economical to produce.

The oxygen sponge seems like a great technology for use in fuel cells, Liz. With all of the new battery technologies you're writing about, let's hope one of them (maybe this), can eventually reach the market.

Many of the new designs in energy and storage sources are relying on the development and use of new or different materials than typically used in the past. This oxygen "sponge" is a fine example of where this type of innovation is going, particularly in battery chemistry, an area in which researchers are trying a number of different things to come up with stronger and better ways to store energy.

Latest Analysis
Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers. 
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Ford Motor Co. announced plans last week to join an ever-growing number of automakers who intend to produce fully autonomous vehicles in the next five years.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
