High Energy Density Supercapacitors

Cambridge Modelling is working with a leading supercapacitor manufacturer on a new type of commercial supercapacitor based on a high capacitance nanocomposite material that offers superior energy density alongside high power performance. The nanocomposite material was originally developed at the University of Cambridge and has since been refined and optimised by Cambridge Modelling, which holds the intellectual property and know-how relating to the synthesis and application of this novel nanocomposite material.

  1. Please, Can I have more information of your work on supercapictors and contact information.

    Thanking you in Advance,
    KACST Science and Technology Institute

    • Certainly Fozi,

      We work on nanostructured supercapacitor materials including carbon nanomaterials (e.g. nanotubes, graphene, activated carbon, etc.), conducting polymers and nanocomposites between these materials. By combining conductive high surface area, nano-porous carbon structures with a high energy density redox coating, we are able to achieve specific capacitances well in excess of either component material alongside high power performance.

      To give you an idea of the technology fundamentals behind our work in this area, you can refer to the peer-reviewed publications listed below. Given the commercial nature of our work in this area, we have not released any publications of our recent developments, however we are happy to discuss our capabilities with you in more detail if this is of interest.

      Dr Mark Hughes leads our work in this area and he can be contacted at moc.gnilledomegdirbmac@sehguh.kram for further information and to arrange a call or meeting for a more detailed discussion.
