Solar supercapacitor could power future of wearable sensors

A team of scientists led by an Indian-origin professor has developed a new solar-powered supercapacitor that could help make future wearable technologies lighter and more energy-efficient.

In a paper published in the journal Nano Energy, researchers from the University of Glasgow’s Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) group describe how they have developed a promising new type of graphene supercapacitor, which could be used in the next generation of wearable health sensors.

Currently, wearable systems generally rely on relatively heavy, inflexible batteries, which can be uncomfortable for long-term users. Read More
