AB - We are developing structural polymeric composites with supercapacitor functionality. These devices carry structural loads while simultaneously storing electrochemical energy. If designed with sufficient structural and energy efficiency, these materials could enable significant system-level weight reductions by replacing inert structural components while providing supplementary power for light load applications. To enable this concept, we have designed mechanical loadbearing properties directly into the supercapacitor electrodes and electrolyte such that each component is itself multifunctional. Several electrode types are evaluated here for multifunctional properties in a structural composite supercapacitor configuration. The resulting supercapacitor composites have been characterized to quantifiably compare changes in materials and processing, including tensile and shear tests to assess mechanical properties, and cyclic voltammetry to assess energy storage behavior.
