Advanced Materials for Energy and Power

The use of fuel cells and supercapacitors is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years. New energy generation and storage devices must be made more efficient. Optimizing the micro-/nano-structure of the electrodes used in these devices will make a major stride in improving efficiency. HPMI researchers have discovered that the controllable nanostructure of CNT buckypaper is ideal for providing electro-catalyst support in fuel cells and supercapacitors to significantly improve energy and power efficiency.
