Direct Printing of Ultra-Stretchable Supercapacitors

A promising direct printing method that combines new materials for hybrid, ultra-stretchable supercapacitors. Supercapacitors can quickly discharge making them ideal for applications such as electric vehicles, ships and trains. These novel materials are lighter weight and have the potential perform better than current supercapacitor technology. These combination of materials can be fabricated in a wide array of shapes and sizes, including thin films and fibers; increasing their electrochemical and mechanical properties such as better electrical conductivity, capacity and durability.
