A team of researchers hailing from Penn State and the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China have developed an unorthodox material which has the potential to be used in the creation of supercapacitors, specifically their electrodes.
The material, comprised of tin and graphene, would amplify the necessary characteristics found in cobalt oxide. It would additionally remove any negative ones. After real-world tests and simulations, the device was found to be functional and a solid contender for next-generation power solutions. The material, relatively cheap and powerful, is sure to be useful in future developments.
