UW team develops fast, cheap method to make supercapacitor electrodes for electric cars, high-powered lasers

Supercapacitors are an aptly named type of device that can store and deliver energy faster than conventional batteries. They are in high demand for applications including electric cars, wireless telecommunications and high-powered lasers. But to realize these applications, supercapacitors need better electrodes, which connect the supercapacitor to the devices that depend on their energy. These…

Request for Proposals – NanoES Research Initiatives

The NanoES Institute offers 35,000 square feet of labs (including wet and optical space), offices, meeting rooms, communal areas, and extremely low vibration/EMI areas in a brand-new building. This space creates an opportunity to scale up ongoing research efforts with strong momentum and to create new, high-impact programs or shared instrumentation facilities. To this end, NanoES is announcing a request for proposals. We are seeking inventive, well-thought-out ideas to leverage this space for maximum effect including, but not limited to, new center efforts and hiring initiatives endorsed by department chairs.
