Two glass scientists from Alfred University's School of Engineering recently received a $2 million U.S. Department of Energy grant.

Two glass scientists from Alfred University's School of Engineering, James Shelby, Ph.D., the McMahon Professor of ceramic engineering, and Matthew Hall, Ph.D., assistant professor of glass science, recently received a $2 million U.S. Department of Energy grant to develop new technology for a storage system for hydrogen to power a new generation of vehicles. The grant, one of only 10 awarded nationwide, is part of the $350 million Freedom Car program designed to put hydrogen-powered cars on the road by 2015. The researchers are proposing a system that would encapsulate hydrogen at 10,000 psi in microspheres, which are tiny glass beads that have a 50-micron diameter.
