Researchers in the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, have developed a new material for energy storage device electrodes using activated carbon and reduced graphene oxide. The team is now keen to license the technology to a suitable partner for development. Possible applications include automotive industry and hybrid vehicles, smartphones, and energy harvesting.
Key benefits include
- 25-30% improvement in specific capacitance
- Up to 400% improvement in power density and discharge rate
- Low cost, standard production processes and solvents
