Kent State Researcher Develops Hybrid Fuel Cell Battery/Capacitor

Yanhai Du, Ph.D., College of Aeronautics and Engineering professor, has been working with an interdisciplinary research team to develop a hybrid fuel cell battery/capacitor. This fuel cell is the first to have been developed for commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), such as drones. The new technology could have benefits in the military, commercial, inspection, and emergency response sectors.
