It has been shown that a catalytic effect can be produced on oxygen fuel-cell electrodes by the incorporation of radioactive isotopes into the electrode structure. Experiments with ß emitters have resulted in low temperature and pressure silver electrodes capable of high current drains at favorable polarization values. Analysis of the data indicates support for the hypothesis that radiations exert a significant effect on diffusion control within the pores of the electrode.
