Hydrogen Permeable Protective Coating for a Catalytic Surface

Nanostructures and methods for production thereof by phase separation during metal organic vapor-phase epitaxy (MOVPE). An embodiment of one of the methods may comprise providing a growth surface in a reaction chamber and introducing a first mixture of precursor materials into the reaction chamber to form a buffer layer thereon. A second mixture of precursor materials may be provided into the reaction chamber to form an active region (14) on the buffer layer, wherein the nanostructure is embedded in a matrix (16) in the active region. Additional steps are also disclosed for preparing the nanostructure product for various applications.

NREL is looking for an organization to develop and commercialize this innovative technology. Interested organizations may consider developing/commercializing this technology through a license agreement, Cooperative Research Agreement, or Work for Others agreement.
