    Apr 1st, 2021 : Flexible Supercaps Enable Body-Sensing Harvesting-Powered Apps

    By developing an innovative physical structure, researchers overcame the rigidity limitations of conventional supercapacitors and improved the compatibility between energy-harvesting transducers and body-wearable sensors.

    Supercapacitors are widely used for energy storage and often associated with harvesting applications. However, their physical rigidity makes them a less-than-desired option for many such situations, especially those that use a body’s motion as the energy source. Among the limitations of conventional micro-supercapacitors, with their “sandwich-like” stacked geometry, are poor flexibility, long ion-diffusion distances, and a complex integration process when combined with wearable electronics.
