When you think of hydrogen, cars might be the first thing that comes to mind. But last week, non-automotive applications were the focus of the design developed by the grand prize winner of the 2007-2008 Hydrogen Student Design Contest.
In the opening keynote panel of the NHA's 19th Annual Hydrogen Conference, Shannon Baxter Clemmons, Executive Director of the South Carolina Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Alliance (SCHFCA) announced the team from Missouri University of Science & Technology as the winner of the Hydrogen Education Foundation's (HEF) 2007-2008 Hydrogen Student Design Contest.The team was recognized for their unique design that highlighted technologies that are currently available for consumer purchase, including back-up and portable fuel cell power supply, hydrogen fork lifts, and on-site hydrogen production technologies. The awards were presented by this year's Title Sponsor the SCHFCA, represented by Ms. Baxter-Clemmons. Another lead sponsor, U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program, represented by Deputy Assistant Secretary Dr. Steven Chalk, was also part of the award presentation. Other contest sponsors included Chevron Hydrogen, Natural Resources Canada, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, and American Wind Power and Hydrogen.
The team from Missouri received an all-expenses paid trip to Sacramento, CA for the NHA Conference to present their design to attendees on opening day. The winning team's presentation followed a panel of distinguished speakers, notably Paul Brubaker, adminstrator of the Department of Transportation's Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) and Dr. Steve Chalk, U.S. Department of Energy. Ms. Baxter-Clemmons, presented the awards to the grand prize winners. "We were very impressed by the students creative and practical design for hydrogen use at the Columbia Airport" said Mrs. Baxter-Clemmons, "We are proud to help support the education of students and expand the public knowledge base about near-term applications of hydrogen."CONTACT:

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.
Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
