3D printing uses local fluid flow for improvement.
According to LLNL engineer Victor Beck, he is the lead author, ¨At LLNL we are pioneering the use of three-dimensional reactors with precise control over the local reaction environment. The novel, high-performance electrodes will be essential components of next-generation electrochemical reactor architectures. This advancement demonstrates how we can leverage the control that 3D printing capabilities offer over the electrode structure to engineer the local fluid flow and induce complex, inertial flow patterns that improve reactor performance.¨
