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. […]






University of Surrey researchers have found a ground-breaking development of technology that could revolutionize the capabilities of appliances that have previously relied on battery power to work. The development could translate into very high energy density supercapacitors making it possible to recharge your mobile phone, laptop or other mobile devices in just a few seconds. […]






MIT researchers have for the first time developed a supercapacitor that uses no conductive carbon at all. The new supercapacitors could potentially produce more power than existing versions of this technology. Energy storage devices called supercapacitors have become a hot area of research, in part because they can be charged rapidly and deliver intense bursts […]






Penn State Materials Research Institute scientists have developed a polymer dielectric material with high energy density, high power density and excellent charge-discharge efficiency for electric and hybrid vehicle use. The key is a unique three-dimensional sandwich-like structure that protects the dense electric field in the polymer/ceramic composite from dielectric breakdown. The team’s results have been […]
