How Can Hard Drive Manufacturers Store More Data? Ultracapacitors

November 17, 2017

Author: Katie Willgoos

We are living in a fully digitalized era, where the amount of data we generate every day is huge. Actions like shooting a 60-second video, taking a bunch of high-definition pictures, and sending multiple text messages have become part of our everyday lifestyle. Today, the estimated amount of data we generate daily is 2.5 exabytes, the equivalent of 2,500,000,000 Gigabytes (2.5 Quintillion bytes = a lot of bytes). While the current amount of data being generated is enormous, the rate at which...

Multiple Electrolytes, One Electrode: Nanoramic CE

April 19, 2018

Author: Fabrizio Martini

Supercapacitors, also known as electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) or ultracapacitors, are novel energy storage devices capable of storing energy through electrostatic forces rather than chemical reactions as it occurs in batteries. Supercapacitors can deliver 100 times more power than batteries and can store between 10 to 100 times more energy per unit volume or mass than regular capacitors...
