Novel carbons for highly efficient dual-layer capacitors
Within the framework of the BMBF project AktivCaps, carbide-derived carbons (CDCs) for highly efficient double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) are being investigated. This project is characterized by the interplay between material development and simulation. The core was formed by, in addition to material synthesis and characterization, the development and adaption of simulation tools in order to make precise predictions on the material properties of highly porous activated carbons, and to thereby optimize the synthesis conditions.
The manufacture of the EDLC electrodes from the CDCs as well as the electrochemical tests took place at the Department of Electrical Energy Storage at the Fraunhofer IFAM, Oldenburg.
