SEEK NEW ANSWERS

Two male researchers, one female researcher and a male student gather around a device in Clemson University’s Advanced Material Research Laboratory.

Alternative Energy

Turbines powered by hydrogen are a newer concept in clean energy generation, and Associate Professor Fei Peng is leading research critical to their development. His team seeks to create a new type of coating that will protect turbine blades from the extreme environment produced by hydrogen combustion, which reaches temperatures of 1,700 degrees Celsius. By better understanding how certain materials behave inside the intense heat of hydrogen-fueled turbines, researchers can keep the coating free of cracks and other defects that would expose the blades to damage.
