Internship ǀ Testing Nanoscale Materials to Improve Energy-Storing Devices

Ari Blumer

By Ari Blumer ’18 B.S. Engineering Physics, Honors Tutorial College Electrochemical supercapacitors typically store 10 to 100 times more energy per unit than electrolytic capacitors. They utilize the energy-storing mechanisms found in traditional capacitors and batteries, bringing them both into one device using an ionic electrolyte and a high-surface-area electrode […]
