Carbon Aerogel

Material Synthesis and Device Architecture

Developing the chemistry and synthesis conditions to produce supercapacitor materials coupled with innovative engineering of the architecture enables complete control over all aspects of the device.

Woven Fabric Model

Modelling

Modelling is an important process to understand the system and to guide the experimental processes/layup. A multiphysics model enables virtual testing of samples and accelerates development and output.

Research II

Electrochemical and Mechanical Testing

Testing and characterisation

To evaluate both electrochemical and mechanical material properties requires diverse expertise within the group. Improving these multifunctional properties are a challenge and an exciting area of investigation.

Battery shaped car

Applications and implantation

Case studies for implantation of structural power composites is highlighting how these structures will impact daily-life as we create, store, & consume energy differently.
