Developing a Paradigm for High Energy Density Capacitive Energy Storage
MetadataShow full item record
Demonstrated the existence of a new class of materials, Tube-Super Dielectric Materials (TSDM), with highest dielectric constants ever measured. Employed this novel dielectric material to create capacitors with the highest energy densities ever reported, >400 J/cm3. The potential to enable weapon systems such as the rail gun and advanced lasers was explored, and the science of all types of superdielectric materials was advanced. Two student MS theses (LCDR Jonathan Gandy and LT Natalie Jenkins), two journal publications, one presentation at an international conference and one patent were generated based on work conducted.
