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 […]

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 […]
