Abstract

Using its novel carbon nanosheet technology, Luna Innovations will develop an ultra-capacitor with with >50 Wh/kg, and 0.2 nm pores, and decrease the complexity and processing steps needed to create the electrodes thereby increasing the energy storage density, response time, and overall performance of the capacitors produced. Preliminary testing of a nanosheet capacitor has already demonstrated the validity of Luna s approach.
