Dielectric material between capacitor electrodes increases the capacitance. However, when the electric field exceeds a threshold, electric breakdown in the dielectric discharges the capacitor suddenly and the stored energy is lost. We show that nanovacuum tubes do not have this problem because (i) electric breakdown can be suppressed with quantization phenomena, and (ii) the capacitance is large at small gap sizes. We find that the energy density and power density in nanovacuum tubes are large…

Large energy storage efficiency of the dielectric layer of graphene nanocapacitors.
The energy storage capabilities of graphene nanocapacitors are examined, which are tri-layer devices involving an Al film, Al2O3 dielectric layer, and a single layer of carbon atoms, i.e., graphene, and it is discovered that the amount of charge stored in the dielectrics can be equal or can even exceed the amountof charge stored on the capacitor plates.
Nuclear energy conversion with stacks of graphene nanocapacitors
It is shown that during the deceleration process more than 90% of kinetic energy of charged nuclear reaction products is converted to electric energy and stored as electric energy in a stack of charged capacitors with a gap size of 500 nm and graphene electrodes.
Recovery of Alumina Nanocapacitors after High Voltage Breakdown
It is demonstrated that the insulating properties of atomic-layer-deposited Al2O3 thin films in Al/Al 2O3/Al trilayers can recover after the breakdown, which holds promise for a new generation of capacitors capable of restoring their properties after the dielectric breakdown.

We study the dielectric strength of vacuum gaps of under 100 nm. We find their dielectric strengths to have a power law dependence on the gap size. We apply this power law to find that the dielectric

Synthetic atoms: Large energy density and a record power density
The ratio between the maximum amount of retrievable energy and the mass of a battery measures how light weight a battery is, and this quantity is called the energy density.
