Polymer Electric Storage, Flexible and Adaptable

August 21, 2008
The rapid emergence of hybrid electric automobiles in recent years underscores the need for more flexible and reliable methods of high-capacity electrical storage, say researchers. Now a team of Penn State materials scientists are developing ferroelectric polymer-based capacitors that can deliver power more rapidly and are much lighter than conventional batteries. Full story
