Designing compressible hybrid supercapacitors from graphene aerogels (2017–2020)
Compressible hybrid supercapacitors are promising energy storage devices for elastic and wearable electronics under large strain and deformation. However, the controlled fabrication of such devices remains a great challenge. This project aims to design and synthesize compressible hybrid supercapacitors using graphene aerogels as substrates through novel structural design and surface modification. High-performance compressible energy storage devices are expected to be developed. The success of the project will not only benefit the booming graphite industry of Australia but also promote the Australia's competitiveness in new wearable electronics markets.
