Overcoming the low-dimension crisis in the active zone of fuel cells

A substantially new type of fuel cell (FC) architecture is proposed, which must provide for an increase in the efficiency above the level achieved with FCs designed according to the traditional scheme. A prototype material necessary for the creation of FCs of the new type with active zones has been developed.
