ECCAP Symposium

Large EC Capacitor Technology and Application

Session 1:

Advances in EC Capacitor Materials and Cell Design

 

Tuesday June 7, am

 

To enhance the value proposition of EC Capacitors by boosting cell performance, improvements in electrode capacity, power performance, electrolyte properties, electrode technology, and cell design are desired. In this session, we review the latest advances in materials, including the development of low-cost materials and processes to meet the pricing threshold of most markets, and in cell designs, including development of advanced asymmetric ECs:

Session 2:

New EC Capacitor Products and Business Development

Tuesday June 7, pm

 

In this session we review new capacitor products and EC business development. Leaders from key companies will discuss future products and business strategies as they expand their product offerings to support growth of energy-efficient industrial, utility, and transportation-related energy storage systems.

Session 3:

EC Capacitor Storage System Applications

Wednesday June 8, am

 

EC Capacitor modules are designed to optimally meet energy-storage requirements of specific applications at the highest level of reliability and lowest possible cost. In some applications, the EC Capacitor is the only energy-storage technology used while in others it is combined with power generation or battery storage. We review in this session EC module design and system engineering to meet performance goals of key applications, including those related to transportation, to industrial energy conservation, and to the utility grid.

Spray-On Antennas Could Be the Tech Connector of the Future

Invisibly thin MXene antennas can be applied to a variety of substrates and perform better than antenna materials currently used in mobile devices.

Now, researchers at Drexel University have developed a method for creating nearly invisible antennas on almost any surface by literally spraying them on like paint. The antennas are made from a special two-dimensional metallic material called MXene. MXene powder can be dissolved in water to create a paint that is then airbrushed on. In tests, even a layer as thin as just 62 nanometers – thousands of times thinner than a sheet of paper – could communicate effectively. Performance maxed out at just 8 microns, a point at which the spray-on antennas worked just as well as those currently used in mobile devices and wireless routers.

 
Congratulations to professor Yury Gogotsi, professor Rodney S. Ruoff and professor Patrice Simon with being named by Clarivate Analythics among of the 17 most cited and influenced world-class scientists in 2018!

Professor Yury GogotsiThis designation celebrates researchers whose influence is comparable to that of Nobel Prize recipients, as attested by exceptionally high citation records within the Web of Science.

MXene is one of the most sensitive gas sensors ever reported

MXene gas sensorsMXene is one of the most sensitive gas sensors ever reported that sniff out chemicals in the air to warn us about everything from fires to carbon monoxide to drunk drivers to explosive devices hidden in luggage have improved so much that they can even detect diseases on a person’s breath. Researchers from Drexel University and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have made a discovery that could make our best “chemical noses” even more sensitive.
