Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have developed a paper-based flexible supercapacitor using a simple layer-by-layer coating technique that could be used to help power wearable devices. The device uses metallic nanoparticles to coat cellulose fibers in the paper, creating supercapacitor electrodes with high energy and power densities – and the best performance so far in […]

Michigan Technological University researchers have developed a new way to make surface-microporous 3-D graphene, which has a unique structure of mesopores and micropores, that could be made into a supercapacitor. The new process makes tiny dents in the surface of the graphene greatly enhancing its potential as a supercapacitor. Even better, it can be made […]

Chinese scientists have introduced an extraordinarily stretchable and compressible polyelectrolyte. The new electrolyte when combined with carbon nanotube composite paper electrodes, forms a supercapacitor that can be stretched to 1000 percent in length and compressed to 50 percent in thickness without gaining and not losing capacity. The potential for flexible, wearable electronics that require equally […]

Australia’s RMIT University researchers, inspired by the western Swordfern, have invented a new groundbreaking type of supercapacitor electrode. The prototype could be the answer to the storage challenge holding back renewable energy solutions. The new type of electrode could boost the capacity of existing storage technologies by 3000 percent, say researchers. The graphene-based prototype also […]

University of Tehran researchers at the university’s Nano Fabricated Energy Devices Lab have used an ultra-fast and simple method for the fabrication of different types of copper hydroxide nanostructures. The researchers proposed a fast, simple and low cost electric field enhanced synthesis method can be used for fabrication of high performance Cu(OH)2 nanostructured supercapacitance electrodes. […]
