Perovskites crystals : a revolution for the fuel cells ?

According to IEEE Spectrum, crystals known as perovskites could improve fuel cells, as they already did for solar cells. By exposing a perovskite to hydrogen fuel, the scientists found that the electrons donated by the hydrogen interacted with the electrons in the crystal. The resulting collective quantum mechanical effect suppressed electron conduction through the perovskite [...]
