  • Speeding up the hydrogen production by the magic topological surface states

The hydrogen economy is considered to be one of the best options for providing renewable energy and, thereby, contributing to mitigating today´s environmental challenges. The energy density of hydrogen is between 120-142 MJ/kg, which is much greater than that of chemical, fossil, and biofuels. More importantly, water is the only byproduct when hydrogen is used to produce electricity.
