Na-ion Pseudocapacitors

Oregon State University, OR, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

This is a novel pseudocapacitor as the electric power source for hybrid electric vehicles. The device, for the first time, utilizes highly reversible intercalational pseudocapacitance for both electrodes in non-aqueous electrolyte. It delivers high power density, long cycling life and high energy density at reasonable cost.

Primary Application Area: Energy & Efficiency

Technology Development Status: Concept

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: As the electric power source for HEVs, our technology precisely fits the most desirable performance metrics: high power as supercapacitors, long cycling life close to supercapacitors and energy density 5 times of supercapacitors.
