Abstract

Recently, fiber/yarn-based energy-storage systems have attracted enormous attention due to their remarkable promises in smart textiles and high-tech sportswear etc., mainly as more pliable energy-storage units being truly wearable. Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes to develop graphite fibers (GFs), which are fabricated by a scalable and cost effective wet spinning approach, and later chemically modified and assembled into a fiber-based supercapacitor (FSC). If successful, Scalable, inexpensive manufacturing processes that produce yarns capable of storing energy will be developed for the wearable electronics sector.
