Constituent material synthesis
The main constituents of a structural supercapacitor composite include the electrodes/reinforcement, multifunctional matrix (structural electrolyte), separator and current collector.
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.
Case studies for application and implementation of structural power composites is highlighting how these structures will impact daily-life as we create, store and consume energy differently.
