Advanced Biomimetic Sensors, Inc., Rockville, MD, US
MemCap® is an innovative nano-biomimetic memcapacitor systems provide flexible high energy and power density for energy storage and stable longer discharge based on memristor/memcapacitor and meminductor engineering design and nanobiomimetic membrane with more than 30% reduction of power consuming compared with conventional fuel cell and supercapacitor for daily operation plus 100-times lighter weight and 100-fold smaller size. It is reversible and low frequency to high frequency switchable without noise. After Raytheon’s 3 years mentorship, ABS developed many dozens prototype devices demonstrated scalability in multiple module assembling. Because the device is memcapacitor and mem-inductor in nature, it is great be used in power grid switch stations without produce heat and without lose energy. Several demos were shown to visitors.
