Media from: High oxygen production in thin-film materials could lead to greatly increased power production for fuel cells

This diagram shows the experimental setup used by Prof. Yang Shao-Horn and her team. The circles in the background represent tiny thin-film electrodes made of a material called strontium-substituted lanthanum cobalt perovskite, or LSC (whose crystal structure is diagrammed at top left). The diagram shows the lab setup used to measure the catalytic activity of the LSC. The circular cutout shows how oxygen molecules (O2) are exchanged on the LSC surface.
