Nanotube Ink Printed Super Capacitors PDF Print E-mail

A basic explanation of nanotechnology in business is the thought of as the method of manufacturing items at a molecular level.  Normally 1 to 100 nanometres. We want to manipulate the molecules to build very useful things. The end result are products with molecular precision that are less expensive and high efficient with few, if any, defects.  A nanometer is a super small billionth of a meter. 

Nanotube Ink - NanotechnologySo our friends at the University of California guided by George Gruner have manipulated molecules and developed a "Nanotube Ink". A Nanotube Ink??  Yes. where supercapacitors and batteries can be printed on the surface of electronics.  Wow... the ability to print flexible super capacitors and batteries directly on electronics will be incredible for so many disposable devices like RFID Tags and very small displays.   "The batteries are similar to conventional batteries," says Gruner, "with the electrically conducting nanoscale networks replacing conventional metals and electrodes." 

Their current challenge is that the batteries and supercapacitors they produced were only tested with very low power. They are working now on increasing the power output.  Gruner said that since both the printed super-capacitors and batteries can be made at room temperatures, it would be feasible for these to be mass produced using our current methods.  As soon as they figure out how to produce more power we will see the make it’s way to our everyday portable electronics.  This is very possible.

The girl in this photo is wearing Prada.. you can tell by the red tag.  I like that.
