The same device that opens doors on buses and planes could be used to meet peak energy demands on satellites.
(Phys.org) —Advances in flexible and stretchable electronics have prompted researchers to explore ways to create stretchable supercapacitors—robust energy storage devices—to power these and other devices.
(Phys.org)—Researchers from North Carolina State University have created flower-like structures out of germanium sulfide (GeS) – a semiconductor material – that have extremely thin petals with an enormous surface area. ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- Electrochemical capacitors (ECs), also known as supercapacitors or ultracapacitors, differ from regular capacitors that you would find in your TV or computer in that they store substantially higher amounts ...
Researchers report that wood-biochar supercapacitors can produce as much power as today's activated-carbon supercapacitors at a fraction of the cost – and with environmentally friendly byproducts.
(Phys.org) —A new material that can store large amounts of energy with very little energy loss has been developed by researchers at the Australian National University.
Clay, an abundant and cheap natural material, is a key ingredient in a supercapacitor that can operate at very high temperatures, according to Rice University researchers who have developed such a device.
New types of nanostructures have shown promise for applications in electrochemically powered energy devices and systems, including advanced battery technologies.
