Electrochemical Flow Capacitor: A New Concept for Grid Scale Energy Storage
Prof. Yury Gogotsi, Director, A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute, Drexel University

Professor Yury Gogotsi, ECCAP Symposium, AABC 2013Prof. Yury Gogotsi is Distinguished UniversityProfessor and Trustee Chair of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University. He also serves as Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute. His Ph.D. is in Physical Chemistry from Kiev Polytechnic and D.Sc. in Materials Engineering from Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.

His research group works on nanostructured carbons and other nanomaterials. He has co-authored more than 300 journal papers and obtained more than 40 patents. He is a Fellow of AAAS, MRS, ECS and ACerS and a member of the World Academy of Ceramics.


Grid-level energy storage has emerged as one of the key technological challenges impeding the full integration of renewable energy technologies and grid resiliency. Due to the inherent instabilities of the grid, 100s of billions of dollars are lost annually across the globe because of power outages. Thus, grid energy storage offers the opportunity to dampen these effects and strengthen electricity markets on a whole.

Gogotsi team at Drexel University has developed a new technology for grid energy storage called the electrochemical flow capacitor (EFC). The EFC concept benefits from the advantages of both supercapacitors and flow batteries in that it is capable of rapid charging/discharging, has a long cycle lifetime, and enables energy storage and power to be decoupled and optimized for the desired application. This presentation introduces the EFC concept, and highlights:Prof. Yury Gogotsi at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference Europe  June 24 – 28, 2013

The key differences from alternative electrical energy storage systems

A flowable carbon-electrolyte electrode (slurry) for capacitive energy storage

Higher power compared to flow batteries

Scalable system achitecture

The fundamental working principles of the EFC

Electrostatic charge storage

Conductive particle-to-particle network

Rheological performance of capacitive slurry

The current EFC research activities

Movement toward increased energy density via redox-active additives to the flowable electrode (pseudocapacitance)

Flow studies examining conductivity changes with flow rate

Overall System Performance

That presentation concludes by describing team’s progress toward a mid-level demonstration prototype of the EFC and an overview of future directions for the EFC.

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.
