Drexel designs new supercap fabric

Capacitor production

Spongey nanofibre material holds gel electrolyte, helping to reduce battery malfunction and increase energy density Drexel University researchers have created a “fabric-like material electrode” that could enable the manufacture of safer, faster batteries and supercapacitors. The group has designed a new supercapacitor, which looks “like a furry sponge infused with …
