(www.polycharge.com), a start-up established to commercialize a new capacitor technology. This technology helps to make high-power inverters smaller, lighter and more tolerant to high temperatures.
source: nanotechweb news Could the inductor be redesigned in a fundamentally new way? Yes, according to new work by researchers in the US, Japan and China who have made the first high-performance inductors from intercalated graphene that work in the 10-50 GHz range thanks to the mechanism of kinetic inductance – rather than magnetic inductance […]
source: Capacitor Faks blog Today’s electronic devices are smaller in size and have more functionality compared to their predecessors. They are expected to get even smaller with the current advancements in manufacturing technologies. The trend towards miniaturization of components is mainly accelerated by better understanding of materials and improved processing techniques. Critical applications such as […]
source: Phys.org article The Internet of Things is coming, that much we know. But not without components and chips that can handle the explosion of data that comes with IoT. In 2020, there will be 50 billion industrial internet sensors in place. A single autonomous device – a smartwatch, a cleaning robot, or a driverless […]

Source: Phys.org news January 8, 2018, Zhejiang University. Aluminum-ion batteries (AIB) have significant merits of low cost, non-flammability, and high-capacity metallic aluminum anodes based on three-electron redox properties. However, due to its inadequate cathodic performance, especially in terms of capacity, high-rate capability, and cycle life, AIB still cannot compete with Li-ion batteries and supercapacitors.
