Description

Research Topics (Secondary rechargeable battery)
1. Battery
– Li-ion batteries are a key technology and play a dominant role in today’s world, especially for transportation and renewable energy storage.
– Rechargeable Li-S (Li-based) batteries is receiving intense interest at the present time because of their high theoretical specific capacity and energy density.
– The new porous materials which can be able to capture the sulfur molecules are required to improve the efficiency of lithium battery.
2. Supercapacitor
Supercapacitors are electrochemical energy storage devices which share characteristics common to both capacitors and batteries. They are, essentially, capacitors which store charge at the electrical double-layer present on electrodes when they are charged in solution. In order to maximize capacitance, high surface area materials, most commonly activated carbons, are used in the electrodes. Because of the need to maintain the electrodes in an electrolyte solution, construction of supercapacitors is very similar to that for batteries. Carbon-based electrode such as graphene and electrolyte are very important to enhance the capacitance.
