Supercapacitors on demand – Published manuscript in printed and flexible electronics
A new publication investigating energy storage devices made on demand has been accepted into the journal of printed and flexible electronics by researchers at RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) and Linkoping University. Within the report, the authors use organic active materials instead of the traditional inorganic metallic components (only one layer of aluminium is included in the devices) to create large scale devices that are fully printed.
Here’s what the lead author, Dr Robert Brooke had to say about the recent publication:
‘Our all printed energy storage devices show impressive performances that are comparable with those currently reported in the scientific literature. However, the fact that these devices can be manufactured in an all printed process provides a massive advantage in terms of production costs and volume. The ultimate goal would be to have the energy storage materials fabricated in large volumes similar to that of paper production. With the active materials being composed of primarily forest based materials we are edging towards sustainable energy storage for society.’
