As part of the Advanced Space Science and Technology group, I researched graphene and carbon nanotube based electrodes for electrochemical supercapacitors. Reduced graphene oxide (rGO) is a high specific surface-area electrode material that, when complemented with multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT), promises a high energy density surpassing those of batteries used today. The objective of this research is to develop an electric double layer capacitor (EDLC) using novel electrode materials deposited on conductive, semi-conductive, and flexible substrates.
