Flexible supercapacitors for portable electronics – EES article in Chemistry World

Scientists from Germany have created a supercapacitor that is just 50 nanometres thick and less than 5 millimetres wide. The tiny supercapacitor has been successfully integrated into miniaturised, flexible electronic circuits.

Portable consumer electronics, like mobile phones and cameras, are rapidly advancing to meet the demands of modern society. They are becoming smaller, lighter, thinner, flexible and wearable. A bottleneck to further miniaturisation has been reducing the size and increasing the flexibility of the power supply component of electronic circuits – often a supercapacitor.
