Graphene-LED Setup Can Act As A Supercapacitor
Several scientific discoveries were made by accident, and we may just be in the middle of one.
Cairo University graduate Maher El-Kady had unintentionally connected a small piece of graphene to an LED with a wire, causing the graphene to act like a supercapacitor, which can store large amounts of electricity.
Capacitors till today have not been able to store as much electrical energy as conventional batteries, but because of this discovery, capacitors could now rival batteries in terms of storage capacity, without having to contain dangerous chemicals like acids, alkalis and toxic metals.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
