BIOGRAPHY
Caiwei Shen received his B.S. degree in Electronic Engineering in 2010 and his M.S. degree in Microelectronics in 2013, both from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Currently he is a Ph.D. student in Prof. Liwei Lin's group in mechanical engineering, University of California at Berkeley. His research interests mainly focus on flexible supercapacitors and nanomaterials for flexible electronics.

Flexible load-bearing energy storage fabrics [BPN782]
The power source is a bottleneck for the successful development of flexible electronics. Instead
of using rigid and bulky batteries, flexible multifunctional devices that store energy and bear
loads at the same time provide better solutions by working as powering structural components.
Here we demonstrate the woven supercapacitor fabrics featuring high flexibility comparable to
that of wearable textiles, high tensile strength of over 1GPa, high failure pressure of 500MPa,
and fast charging within seconds. The supercapacitor fabrics can power all kinds of wearable
electronics, or be used in other applications that desire load-bearing ability and arbitrary
form-factor design for the power systems.
