Ferroelectric supercapacitors?

  • Thread starter Stanley514
  • Start date
In summary, ferroelectric supercapacitors are energy storage devices that utilize a ferroelectric material as the dielectric layer, resulting in high energy density and quick charge-discharge cycles. They differ from regular supercapacitors in terms of higher energy density, electric displacement, and dielectric constant. They can be used in various applications such as portable electronic devices, electric vehicles, and memory devices. They are manufactured using thin film deposition techniques for precise control over layers. While they have many advantages, such as high energy density and potential for use in different applications, they also have limitations, including low voltage operation and limited temperature range, and are more expensive to manufacture compared to regular supercapacitors.

If we will take two cermet electrodes in which ferroelectric nanocrystals such as Barium Titanate are embeded in metalic matrix,will divide them with separator and will create potential difference say 40 V between them by charging,will it behaive similar to activated carbon supercapacitor?

What are ferroelectric supercapacitors?

Ferroelectric supercapacitors are energy storage devices that use a ferroelectric material as the dielectric layer. This allows for high energy density and fast charge-discharge cycles.

How do ferroelectric supercapacitors differ from regular supercapacitors?

Ferroelectric supercapacitors have a higher energy density due to the use of a ferroelectric material, which allows for a higher electric displacement and polarization. They also have a higher dielectric constant and can store charge for longer periods of time.

What are the potential applications of ferroelectric supercapacitors?

Ferroelectric supercapacitors can be used in a variety of applications, including energy storage for portable electronic devices, electric vehicles, and renewable energy systems. They can also be used in memory devices and sensors.

How are ferroelectric supercapacitors manufactured?

Ferroelectric supercapacitors are typically manufactured using a thin film deposition technique, such as sputtering or chemical vapor deposition. This allows for precise control over the thickness and composition of the layers.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of ferroelectric supercapacitors?

The advantages of ferroelectric supercapacitors include high energy density, fast charge-discharge cycles, and potential for use in a wide range of applications. However, they also have some limitations such as low voltage operation and limited temperature range. They are also more expensive to manufacture compared to regular supercapacitors.
