QES: Nano-Composite Capacitor for High Performance Energy Storage [BPN658] The goal of this project is to design and develop an innovative nanoparticle/polymer
composite material and then apply this nanocomposite to the development of a supercapacitor module
with high energy and high power density. A new technique for creating films of core/shell
nanoparticles in a polymer matrix could allow cost effective fabrication of capacitors with enhanced
energy storage capacity as compared to conventional devices. The module can serve as efficient energy
storage for back-up power in buildings and for hybrid/electric vehicles where lack of fast recharging
time, limits their usage.
