Infrared Route to Graphene Electrodes Electrochemical capacitors can deliver large amounts of power quickly, but have limited energy storage because only the surface regions of electrodes can store charge. Graphene represents an alternative to activated carbon electrodes because of their high conductivity and surface area, but graphene sheets tend to reassociate and lose surface area. El-Kady et al. (p. 1326; see the Perspective by Miller) show that graphite oxide sheets can be converted by… 

Liquid-Mediated Dense Integration of Graphene Materials for Compact Capacitive Energy Storage

Taking advantage of chemically converted graphene’s intrinsic microcorrugated two-dimensional configuration and self-assembly behavior, it is shown that such materials can be readily formed by capillary compression of adaptive graphene gel films in the presence of a nonvolatile liquid electrolyte.

Laser scribed graphene for supercapacitors

Supercapacitors, with the merits of both capacitors for safe and fast charge and batteries for high energy storage have drawn tremendous attention. Recently, laser scribed graphene has been

Graphene Double-Layer Capacitor with ac Line-Filtering Performance

Graphene nanosheets have a preponderance of exposed edge planes that greatly increases charge storage as compared with that of designs that rely on basal plane surfaces, and capacitors constructed with these electrodes could be smaller than the low-voltage aluminum electrolyte capacitors that are typically used in electronic devices.
