A fresh and innovative technology is currently being recognized as a viable replacement for batteries. Research in the field of supercapacitors, as well as in the area of ceramic materials and their application to supercapacitor development, has spawned Nanostructured Ceramic Oxides for Supercapacitor Applications. Featuring key contributions from well-established experts, this book highlights the field of high-energy and power storage devices, and considers the potential of nanostructured ceramic oxides for supercapacitors.
It explores the role of different ceramic oxide systems and their surface nano-architecture in governing the efficacy of a supercapacitor, and presents a detailed understanding of the basic design and science associated with nanostructured ceramic oxide-based supercapacitors. It examines the history and development of this promising energy system, covering the fundamentals, science, and problems associated with this swiftly emerging field. The book also looks extensively into different measurement techniques that can evaluate the performance of this device.
Each chapter includes several simple, well-illustrated equations and schematic diagrams to augment the research topics and help the reader grasp the subject. Background theories and techniques are introduced early on, leading to the evolution of the field of nanostructured ceramic oxide-–based supercapacitors.
Nanostructured Ceramic Oxides for Supercapacitor Applicationschronicles significant strides in device development, and benefits seniors and graduate students studying physics, electrical and computer engineering, chemistry, mechanical engineering, materials science, and nanotechnology.
"… provides excellent background and characterization methods for supercapacitors and explores different nano-structured ceramic oxides used in supercapacitor devices. With the outstanding illustrations, diagrams, and tables used to support an understanding of the theory and mathematics presented, the reader will thoroughly grasp the subject matter and learn about new cutting-edge material developments and current research activities in the growing area of supercapacitor technology."
––John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, July/August — Vol. 31, No. 4
"The subject matter is of significant importance at present, and will be very timely… Storage materials are one of the hottest research topics at present and many active research groups are working on this across the world. This will be an excellent addition."
––Prof. Amit Bandyopadhyay, Washington State University, Pullman, USA
"The subject is a very topical one given the need for efficient energy technologies. Its main strength will be in the breadth of the target audience, from students to industrial practitioners. It is good to see an emphasis on testing procedures, as these can often be more problematic than the actual device design."
