Brown Engineers Build a Better Battery – With Plastic

Postby Evan G » Sep 18, 2006 9:37 am

[center]It’s thin, light, flexible – and plastic. Brown University engineers Hyun-Kon Song
and Tayhas Palmore have created a prototype polymer-based battery that packs
more power than a standard alkaline battery and more storage capacity than a
double-layered capacitor. Their work, published in Advanced Materials, will be
of interest to the energy, defense and aerospace industries, which are looking at
more efficient ways to deliver electricity.

[quote]PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Brown University engineers have created a new battery that uses plastic, not metal, to conduct electrical current. The hybrid device marries the power of a capacitor with the storage capacity of a battery.

A description of the prototype is published in Advanced Materials.

If fate doesn't make you laugh, then you just don't get the joke.
