""We have produced all the hydrogen we need for the coast-to-coast trip using power from the grid, but because they pay us more to put power on the grid from our solar cells than they charge us when we use grid power for electrolysis, we actually have a surplus in our account," - interesting business idea! Let's all of us do that and make more money ;-)...So what happens when government stops subsidizing solar power? Kris

Any safety issues with hydrogen fuel? I wouldn't want to be the Hindenburg during an automobile accident.

Let see safety issues the gas can burn as is rises or the gasoline can burn as it flows under the car. Whats the big safty issue?

We had an inventor here in KC in the late 70's who had several Hydrogen cars sunning back then. He would even drink the water that came out of the exhaust!! Nothing new here, it is simply the need for infra-structure that keeps this from happening.

Interested to see the economics with a real life accounting - not based on a 'non viable in the large scale' anomaly.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
