Nanostructured supercapacitors offer the potential to provide  improved storage of renewable energy resources and to power portable devices. This project aims to enhance the understanding of the mechanism of charge and discharge in these systems to guide in the development of better energy storage systems.  This will be achieved using molecular computations of the structure and diffusion coefficients. 

Chief Investigator
