Title: FLEXIBLE AND SHAPE-CONFORMAL ROPE-SHAPE SUPERCAPACITORS
Abstract:
Provided is a rope-shaped supercapacitor comprising: (a) a first electrode comprising a first conductive porous rod having pores and a first mixture of a first electrode active material (e.g. activated carbon or isolated graphene sheets) and a first electrolyte residing in the pores of the first porous rod; (b) a porous separator encasing the first electrode to form a separator-protected first electrode; (c) a second electrode comprising a second conductive porous rod having pores and a second mixture of a second electrode active material and a second electrolyte residing in pores of the second porous rod; wherein the separator-protected first electrode and second electrode are combined to form a braid or twist yarn; and (d) a protective sheath wrapping around or encasing the braid or yarn.
