Innovative Supercapacitor Architecture: A Hybrid between a Supercapacitor and a Pseudocapacitor

Using the nanoparticles of hydrous ruthenium oxide (RuO2) by first modifying them via carbon nanotubes (CNT) and graphene foam as the electrode material for the supercapacitor, the researchers at the University of California Riverside have developed an innovative energy storage device. They have simply called it a supercapacitor, which technically is a hybrid between a supercapacitor and a pseudocapacitor. Once the electrodes were formed via the modification (mentioned above), they were then added in an aqueous electrolyte. The resultant combination provided higher energy with more power density supercapacitors than the…

Right Enzymes Replicated the Semi-Synthetic DNA: Expanded-DNA Biology

Scientists always dig deeper into the functioning of nature in order for their better understandings. At times, these trials and errors have given rise to serendipity or accidental discoveries in science, amongst others, recent being how sliding saltwater over graphene generated electricity. While at other times, these experiments go beyond the natural order of workings even at the miniscule level.

Stanene Could be The New Building Block For Circuit Structures

Topological insulators by default mean heavy and electron-rich elements however, recent research at sub atomic levels are changing this age-old fact. Researchers have been fascinated with this evolved class of material. According to Wikipedia, A topological insulator is a material with time reversal symmetry and trivial topological order, that behaves as an insulator in its interior but whose surface contains conducting states, meaning that electrons can only move along the surface of the material.
