Super solution in hybrid capacitor development

In a step towards a new type of energy storage, QUT researchers have developed a hybrid supercapacitor that offers the best of both worlds in energy storage.

Read more about A/Prof. Deepak Dubal, Prof. Nunzio Motta and PhD researcher Michael Horn’s newest research published inĀ Advanced Materials, reporting on the development of a hybrid supercapacitor which has a capacitor-type titanium carbide-based negative electrode and a battery-type graphene-hybrid positive electrode.

The new energy storage device reaches an energy density close to that of nickel metal hydride batteries, while also offering supercapacitor-level ultra-high power about 10 times that of lithium batteries.
