Supercapacitors are widely used in tiny (MEMS) high-tech devices, as well as in advanced energy systems. Practical use of ultracapacitors opens up new horizons in the technology of accumulation, storing and delivery of electrical energy. Modern materials and technologies which are used to create supercapacitors are results of the advanced achievements in the field of fundamental and applied physics and materials science.
The special collection “Supercapacitors” consists of papers published by Trans Tech Publications Inc. from 2010 up to 2015 and covers a wide range of advanced achievements in the field of applied research of materials and technologies for manufacturing of supercapacitors and some of their application in different branches of engineering practice.
Chapter 1: Materials and Technologies for Creating of Supercapacitors
Chapter 2: Modeling and Measurements of Properties of Supercapacitors
Chapter 3: Some Examples of Practical Application of Supercapacitors
Keywords: Supercapacitors Creation, Properties of Supercapacitors, Practical Application, Modeling, Measurements
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Kolisnychenko assembles nearly 200 papers on supercapacitors that Trans Tech Publications published from 2010 to 2015 and arranges them in chapters on materials and technologies for creating supercapacitors, modeling and measuring properties of supercapacitors, and some examples of practical applications. The topics include modifying the surface of carbon electrodes for supercapacitors using ammonia water, hybrid supercapacitors based on polyaniline and carbon aerogel composite electrode materials, the facile synthesis of cobalt oxide uniformly coated on multi-wall carbon nanotubes for supercapacitors, hierarchical porous materials for supercapacitors, and the thermal analysis of symmetric rectangular stackable supercapacitors. The information could be useful to researchers and engineers who are either creating or using supercapacitors.
