Scientists in South Korea have developed a new graphene supercapacitor with the capability to store as much energy as a lithium-ion battery but can charge in 16 seconds. This application, with its potential to revolutionize the automotive industry, demonstrates just one of the many potentially game-changing uses for graphene.
The commercial viability of this application however, and many more, remains to be revealed. In depth examination of material capability, its translation into device performance, scalability and market demand are all critical factors for economic assessment for this, among other, breakthrough graphene based discoveries.
To address these concerns, the Graphene Commercialization & Applications Summit USA is pleased to host Rodney Ruoff, Director of the Ruoff Group at UT Austin, and Richard Kaner, Professor at UCLA, discussing the status of supercapacitor applications and their potential for boosting energy density.
Other exciting news is Applied Graphene Materials intending to float on the London Stock Exchange. With few investment options existing, this is a step forward for the industry. AGM have forecasted graphene demand to increase tenfold by 2017. They state wider adoption is hampered by the inability to produce it cost efficiently and at scale – again a key area being covered at the summit.
Other Sessions Will Cover Areas Such As:
- Standardization and Quality Control
- Real World Case Studies
- Flexible Electronics
- Structural Applications
- Thermal Properties and Applications
- Processing and Production Methods
- Optical Electronics
This is the only forum with an applications focus aimed at practically and commercially assessing graphene’s breakthrough uses, providing insights into the commercialization roadmaps for graphene’s use in supercapacitors, flexible electronics, transistors, photovoltaics, batteries, sensors, optics, filters and more.
