Tiny Flexible Power Supply
2013-08-07 16:03:26

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Searchers from the Royal Society of Chemistry have created a tiny power supply that is made of a flexible material. This powerful micro-supercapacitor is just nanometers thick - or thin, as the case may be - and this could help electronics companies develop devices such as mobile phones and cameras that are smaller, lighter and thinner than ever before. The bottleneck for making smaller electronic devices such as mobile phones has been...
