Researchers Developed New Hybrid Energy Storage Device
Researchers developed a new device for storing energy that can be charged in less than a minute, according to a study conducted on February 28, 2018.
Researchers from the Graduate School of Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability were successful in developing a new device for energy storage, which has high energy and power densities. This device was built by gathering fiber-like polymer chain anodes and sub-nanoscale metal oxide cathodes present on graphene.
The conventional energy storage devices based on aqueous electrolyte has few limitations such as less charge and low energy density. Capacity of energy storage device depends on the two electrodes and high stability is attained by balance between cathode and anode. Generally, differences in electrical properties and ion storage mechanism processes are exhibited by the two electrodes, which leads to poor storage of energy and stability.
Researchers found new materials to increase the speed of energy exchange on the electrode surfaces and to reduce the loss of energy between them. To achieve high capacitance, anode was made using graphene-based polymer chain materials and high surface area is obtained by using these materials. Metal oxide in sub-nanoscale structures were used for cathode materials, which elevated the atom-by-ion redox reactions. Using this method, energy exchange became faster and energy loss was minimized.
This device, with the help of a low-power charging system, can be charged in 20 to 30 seconds. Compared to the aqueous batteries that are currently in use, the newly developed device exhibits over 100-fold higher density of power and they can be recharged easily. According to the researchers, this device can be easily manufactured and can be used in electronic devices that are portable. This development would increase the growth of global advanced energy storage market, as elaborated in the global advanced energy storage market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
