UCLA engineers craft material for high-performance 'supercapacitor'

By April 18, 2013 No Comments

Researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have synthesized a material that shows high capability for both the rapid storage and release of energy. UCLA researchers said the development could lead to extremely rapid charging of devices, ranging in applications from mobile electronics to industrial equipment. However, it has also been pointed out that, although the electrodes are an important first step, further engineering at the nanoscale and beyond is still necessary to “achieve practical devices with high energy density that can charge in under a minute.”
