Graphene Micro Supercapacitors

Started by amdx February 20, 2013
   An interesting article about micro capacitor manufacturer.

"These micro-supercapacitors, made from a one-atom-thick layer of 
graphitic carbon, can be easily manufactured and readily integrated into 
small devices such as next-generation pacemakers"

Synopsis: A laser-printed 1-atom thick planar graphene super-cap, with interdigitated electrodes for high surface area, written by a LightScribe DVD-writer. Cool. One wonders how you connect to them... -- Cheers, James Arthur

If you go to Nature communications you can at least see the figures in the article. (February issue.) George H.

Sounds like just the thing for a "next-generation pacemakers". One atom separating you from death.

"Honey, I squished the one-atom-thick capacitor?" "[D]ecedent was punched in the atom-thick capacitor. Tragically, it tore." -- Cheers, James Arthur

Thanks. Pictures here: http://www.nature.com/ncomms/journal/v4/n2/pdf/ncom= ms2446.pdf It's too bad they charge $32 for the .PDF. I know Nature needs to survive, but OTOH, as a consumer of their product it's too easy to go broke buying cold fusion hoax articles and the like. The quality of academic publications is, um, unreliable, at best. (Or "reliably bad," if you prefer. $32 a pop leaves loads of kids who could be tomorrow's innovators locked out. -- Cheers, James Arthur

At the last APS March meeting I signed up for a year subscription to Nature for $60 (I think.. it might have been $80). 'In principle' I was also supposed to get on-line access to all their articles. But I ran into several road-blocks when I tried to get it to work.. and just gave up. In a year I could down loda a lot of nice articles... of course I never know what I'm going to want tomorrow. It would be nice if after (say) 20 or 30 years all the old articles were free. George H.

Are they availible on 'Google Books'?
