Graphene Ink to Print Energy Storage Devices

Batteries, supercapacitors and other energy storage devices could one day be printed on desktops from conductive graphene ink, thanks to researchers in the UK. Consumers are constantly demanding ever greater storage capacity from the batteries in smart phones, tablets and other devices. And if solar, wind, and wave power are ever to contribute a substantial proportion of our...

Graphene turns rubber bands into durable sensors

Normal rubber bands can be turned into strain  sensors  by infusing them with  graphene  flakes, according to researchers at the  University of Surrey  and Trinity College Dublin. The process is predictable, reliable and repeatable, costs only a few pence, and the resulting sensors are durable and comparable in performance with commercial sensors, researcher...

Carbon nanosheet alternative to graphene

Scientists at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology have developed a carbon nanosheet made from spin coating a polymer onto a quartz substrate that can be directly used as a transparent electrode in ITO-free organic solar cells. The polymer solution is made of a romatic hydrocarbons and cycloalkanes and the coating is heat treated to develop the carbon nanosheets. The key here...

More on graphene and supercapacitors

Another group of US (Californian) scientists have been working on the use of graphene and CNT's to develop more efficient supercapacitors for energy storage (see article entitled Graphene and CNT Hybrid Supercapacitor ) They have deposited graphene on a nanoscale carbon nanotube porous foam that provides the high surface area that the electrolyte infiltrates. The foam is formed from a...
