Texas A&M University researchers have described their novel plant-based energy storage device that could charge even electric cars within a few minutes in the near future. Furthermore, they said their devices are flexible, lightweight and cost-effective. Dr. Hong Liang, the Oscar S. Wyatt Jr. Professor in the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering […]

UCLA Scientists have developed a 2-in-1 device that uses supercapacitor to store energy and spit hydrogen from water. The device could make hydrogen cars affordable for many more consumers because it produces hydrogen using nickel, iron and cobalt — elements that are much more abundant and less expensive than the platinum and other precious metals […]

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 […]

University of Washington (UW) researchers have developed a fast, inexpensive method to make electrodes for supercapacitors. The important applications include electric cars, wireless telecommunications and high-powered lasers. But to realize these applications, supercapacitors need better electrodes, which connect the supercapacitor to the devices that depend on their energy. These electrodes need to be both quicker […]

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 […]
