Energy Storege

Electrochemical devices, such as batteries and capacitors, are the best known and perhaps the most promising energy storage systems. Electric double layer capacitors (EDLCs), also known as supercapacitors, have received a significant experimental attention because they can achieve a higher energy density than conventional capacitors and offer a better power performance than batteries. A wide variety of different electrode materials and electrolytes are currently being scrutinized to improve on efficiency and practicality of EDLCs.

We are currently developing and characterizing the performance of new materials for high-density energy storage and economically  viable photovoltaics.
