Rice University researchers have developed a graphene- and carbon-based microsupercapacitor that enables greater energy storage and could be used in renewable energy applications and portable devices. "Since the 3D hybrid material also has fantastic electrical conductivity and high surface area, it would now be interesting for us to look into other applications for these supercapacitors, such as advanced electrodes for lithium ion batteries," said Jian Lin, one of the researchers.
