Graphene: Energy Storage’s Silver Bullet or a Promise Stretched Thin?

|

Graphene is a two dimensional layer of carbon atoms. That means it is one atom thick. It also means it is so incredibly thin it is transparent. It is also flexible, 200 times stronger than steel and as much as 1,000 times more conductive than copper.

Graphene’s remarkable properties have spurred  … Read More

MENLO PARK, CA – MARCH 28, 2016 – Capacitor Sciences has developed patent-pending materials to create nano-structured crystalline thin films. When used as the dielectric material in a capacitor these materials create high performance capacitive energy storage cells capable of producing 10X the energy density and 100X the power density  … Read More

Drone Fueled by Hydrogen: A Game Changer?

Drone Fueled by Hydrogen: A Game Changer?

|

Numerous automakers already use hydrogen cells as an alternative to gas-fueled internal combustion engines. But until this year, the same technology hadn’t been applied to aviation. That all changed in January, when a team of scientists tested a drone at Oban Airport along Scotland’s western coast.

The unmanned drone was the  … Read More
