DGIST (Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology in Korea) researchers developed a piezoelectric polymer/ceramic composite fiber with a cross-sectional form that is uniformly controlled to allow the use of energy harvesting technologies that can recycle energy wasted or consumed in everyday life. The results of this study have been published in Nano Energy. Piezoelectric […]

Elsevier is reporting that a team of researchers from the Plasma Physics Research Centre, Science and Research Branch of Islamic Azad University in Tehran, Iran, have discovered a way of making paper supercapacitors for electricity storage. At one sheet thick, these new supercapacitors can bend, fold, flex, and still hold electricity. The team’s research paper […]

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 […]

EEStor Lives!

February 11, 2013 | 6 Comments

Now two weeks out from a press release EEStor has met the goal of getting under the radar of the media.  A quick look at Google News finds almost nothing.  Still, the stockholders of Canada’s Zenn Motors are thrilled.  Zenn is a “hibernating” company now, as its electric car building has long since ceased.  The […]
