LSG-manganese capacitors – Energy storage and conversion

Supercapacitors

Supercapacitors (also known as ultracapacitors, electrochemical capacitors, or double-layer capacitors) are electrochemical devices that store and release charge and deliver high power densities over short periods of time.

Their ability to store electrical energy efficiently and release electrical energy very quickly makes them ideally suited for applications where short-time backup power and peak power needs are critical.

LSG-manganese capacitors

Using special nanomaterials researchers at UCLA’s California NanoSystems Institute have prepared ”LSG-manganese capacitors” that ”store as much electrical charge as a lead acid battery” and that ”yet can be recharged in seconds and store about six times the capacity of state-of-the-art commercially available supercapacitors”.

LSG“LSG-manganese capacitors store as much electrical charge as a lead acid battery and yet can be recharged in seconds and store about six times the capacity of state-of-the-art commercially available supercapacitors”.

Instrumentation for development

The development of supercapacitors such as this requires stringent electrochemical analysis.

Metrohm Autolab offers the appropriate instrumentation for such analyses.
