Use of 3D Printing to Make Supercapacitors with Graphene

What is it about?

We developed a 3D printing protocol on printing 3D supercapacitor electrodes with exceptional ability for holding a large number of charges within less than seconds in charging time.

Why is it important?

Who don't want to use their cellphones full of power after a charging time less than 10 seconds?

Perspectives

This work is a stepping stone for integrating the state-of-the-art printing technique into the main stream of energy storage devices such as batteries and supercapacitors. A series of projects are undergoing in our lab, stay tuned!
