SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to develop printed, high-performance ultracapacitors to meet the Army"s need for lightweight energy storage. SI2 will leverage its demonstrated expertise in ink jet printing and our partner"s expertise with carbon nanoparticle synthesis to develop low-cost, flexible, printed ultracapacitors. SI2 has considerable experience in the roll-to-roll deposition of conductive ink patterns. These patterns are printed directly from a computer file in an ambient environment without any tooling, masks, etc. In Phase I, SI2 and its partner will screen several new ink recipes with regard to their ability to meet energy storage requirements, and a printed ultracapacitor demonstrator will be produced. Manufacturing of the most promising ultracapacitors will be scaled-up in Phase II, and advanced testing will be performed to simulate the harsh environments to which the devices will be exposed in the field.
